She’s Geeky

Okay, I bit the bullet and signed up.

I went last year and it was an interesting combination of scary (there by myself, didn’t know anyone, nearly everyone there was smarter and generally better looking AND younger than I was – I’m talking Google and TiVo techs, guys, plus lots of LinuxChix) and excruciatingly interesting  for almost the same reasons – nearly everyone there was smarter than I am, presenting a huge variety of incredibly interesting and bleeding edge technology talks in an open, lively way by truly interesting women.  I made some online friends there that I still talk to on occasion, which is the most networking I’ve ever done in my whole life.  It’s not my strong suit.  And I haven’t used it for anything except fun. 🙂 But still!

Anyway, I’m going.  It’s new, and hard, and a four hour drive, and I’ll be by myself again but I will know some faces and it should be mostly all good.

  1. Do NOT be intimidated! The ‘young ‘uns’ need us – and hanging with them keeps us plugged in…

    i’ve got to be in SoCal that week – DAMN, DAMN, DAMN – or i’d be all over this! This is a wicked cool idea… can’t wait to hear about it!
