 There is more than one "she" in tech.

There is this recent blog on the subject on female engineers. I might add that Bonnie Baker and Jan Axelson should be mentioned on any list.

@perl_geek: Right. I'm still not sure if I have the comment threading here figured out yet.

Some people use th ethreded view for comments, in which case it's easy to see ho wone comment relates to another.

I personally use the "Latest on top" view because I bounce back and forth between so many columns. That's why I reference who I'm answering (e.g., "@perl_geek") and also add a relevant sinppet of their text in italics (e.g., "Right. I'm still not sure if I have the comment threading here figured out yet.") because that way we all know who is saying waht to whom LOL

@perl_geek - (There can'tbe many other "she"s in this conext.)


Limor Fried founded Adafruit.  There is more than one "she" in tech.

While the numbers have gone down since the boom of the 1980s and 1990s,  I think 1 out of 10 of "us" work in tech.   I certainly have never felt alone.  Underrepresented perhaps, but never alone.

Then again I am more of a "backroom" engineer, preferring some anonymity. As long as the work gets done, it does not matter who does it.  Too much emphasis in modern society is made about winning the lottery,  which does not do well for producing good role models.

@perl_geek: I assume you're talking about Jeri Ellsworth here?

When you say "you're" -- should we assume that you're responding to Anand? LOL

@Anand: I think the way she handled herself in a male dominated industry is fabulous. Not only did she look after herself but also set even standards, as well as became a role model for other women to read her up and follow her footsteps.

Give us a clue -- who are you talking about? -- Lady Adafruit? -- My Mother? :-)

I think the way she handled herself in a male dominated industry is fabulous. Not only did she look after herself but also set even standards, as well as became a role model for other women to read her up and follow her footsteps. Having said that, I think it was a right move to venture into making a new company, because right now the electronics volume is huge in the world, and new companies are sprouting up every day making promises of being better by the minute. So not only is there a healthy competition, there's also a way to market sales through the many faces of social networking and whatnot.

@DrFPGA: If you could find a convenient place to store and share your projects that would allow the rest of us to take your designs and customize them ourselves. Any ideas?


Sure -- when I've got everything up and running for a particular project, I'll post all of the hardware and software design files associated with that project so that anyone can download them and play with them.
