I’m enjoying both getting quoted by Sarah Lacy in  the Businessweek women in tech column she posted this week and reading the piece itself.

Also digging Sarah’s post on her blog, which quotes a dude telling Julia Allison to lose weight (ROFL) and gets into some of the girl power vibe of younger women in tech.

I’m also working on a column for the upcoming new web mag BitchBuzz, edited by Miz Cate Sevilla, that gets into some of the disconnects around what is pro-woman behavior in the Valley(yes, talking with Sarah helped prompt that).

So here’s the question:

  • What can women in the Valley do to help one another further?
  • How do we smooth out some of the disconnects about what feels appropriate in style and presentation (or agree to give one another more supportive space)?
  •  If you’re a women working in tech, how do you want other women to help you?

To put it another way, I’m a big supporter of both BlogHer and She’s Geeky, and a big fan of Women Who Tech and Women 2.0/Bay area Girl Geeks dinner–but how do we bring all these things together? What’s the opportunity to further given one another collegiality, mentoring, suppport?

If we had a new girls network, what would you want it to look like?
