Call for subs: She’s Such a Geek

Call for subs: She’s Such a Geek

Lunatech showed me this site. As a woman in the male dominated field of computer programming I have to say – “It’s about Damn Time!”. There are too few of us in the computer world (just join an IRC channel and let it be known your a girl… never fails someone will say “Girl! your a GIRL! Wow” – especially if you show you are pretty good at what you do before you let it be known).

Daughters need to be shown that being smart or different is OK and that Geek or Nerd is not a bad thing to be called. That the computer world is not a scary place (though some care must be taken especially on chats), and that she should never let ANYONE tell her a “Girl’s Place”. The world is changing – and the world of computers is still just beginning… if we don’t help shape it – we may just be left out of it. And we all know boys should never be left alone for too long or they start messing things up. 😉
