I have been remiss in congratulating Halley Suitt for breaking into another bastion of geek brotherhood – ITConversations. Her new Memory Lane interview series is an interesting addition to the lineup, and I’ve enjoyed listening to her recent interviews with Joi Ito and Dan Bricklin.
I personally think that Susan Hockfield, the new President of MIT, would be an exceptionally good candidate for this series. Hint, hint.
Now, if we could only get at least one woman into the It Garage group blog. I believe this is an open participation weblog, and I thought about contributing myself, but I’m not sure what the focus of the site is. It seems to be focused more on project management than tech, and to be honest, I think that I’m too close to the metal for the site.
That would be funny, wouldn’t it? A woman being too geek for a technology-based site?
But not too close for other events. Tim O’Reilly was kind enough to invite me to this year’s Foo Camp, but I had to decline (with due appreciations and much regret–this is something I would really enjoy). However, I am submitting a presentation proposal for next year’s Emerging Tech Conference, and possibly next year’s OSCON, too.
I’ve had some ideas kicking around in my head a year or two, and I think it’s time I got back into the fun, or at least try to get back into the fun: lot’s of people submitting proposals–I’ll be competing with the best. I figure if my presentation(s) is picked, I’ll know enough webloggers in the area who might be kind enough to offer me a place to stay, and this will keep costs down.
