Far be it for me to criticise an all-female Geek Assembly like BlogHer 2009, but I'd always assumed that the female component of the IT industry were probably all-female. Now I'm not too sure. Glad to hear this time that the upturned lilt had disappeared. The vocal proponent component was much more definite. These women sounded as if they were sure of what they were talking about - the first vid that I watched had girls sounding like they were asking for approval with everything they said. Great coverage of something that, until recently, I'd never been aware of. But then again, I'm always scared of women - particularly en masse. ;)
