Earlier this week I spoke at this years e-girls event, a Zonta initiative. It was a lot of fun, and I looked after an awesome group of Yr 10 girls from all around the Armidale region. I spke to them about Linux, networking, community, my experiences in ICT and why ICT jobs are so fun Many thanks to Cherry for organising yet another fantastic event! The girls made logos using gimp and I have to say, my favourite is the butterfly one below
On this topic, I’m in a team putting together a large event for Sydney girls about ICT. We’ll be running the Sydney one next June, and one in the Central Coast this Sept/Oct. Contact me if you want to participate or have any cool ideas for it I have a basic website up which is in the process of development and the organisers’ email is there. Many thanks to Linuxchix Brazil for letting us use Marie, the Linuxchix Brazil mascot!
Join the book mailing listI'm writing a book, just because I think it is a good time for us all to consider where we are heading and how we can get there. If you're interested in keeping up with updates, chapters and events, please subscribe. The list will only be used expressly for that purpose. Many thanks for the interest and support :)
Welcome to my blog. It goes back a while and has my thoughts on all things technology, open government, FOSS and freedom. May contain traces of silliness and martial arts.
Check out my Gov 2.0 (open government) posts. They represent the bulk of my thinking and work at the moment.
These thoughts are my own.
