She’s Geeky: I’m going–how about you?

I’ve been working with Kalyia Hamlin, Laurie Rae, Julie French, Mary Hodder and lots of others to help pull together an unconference called She’s Geeky that is happening Oct 22-23 at the Computer History Museum in Santa Clara, California.
For me working on this conference is both a chance to give back and do some service for the community, and to support (other) women in tech, especially the less traditional ones who may have cross-functional roles and/or feel somewhat isolated or unique.
This is a gathering for women who self-identify as geeky (as in tech geeks) and/or work in technology; the first afternoon will be workshops and panels; the full day will be an unconference.
So, please–get involved if this is of interest–it is going to be a great, diverse, friendly and vibrant day and a half.
