  • Navigating officer on super tankers?! You heard right.

    I have to say I admire Eileen!  She is one of the strongest and most passionate women I know.  She is so passionate about her technology areas and supports women in technology 110%!

    I have to say a very BIG thank you to Eileen and the Microsoft Teams for their support for the London Girl Geek Dinners.  I would love for Charles and the team to come down to one of our events in the future.  (You are more than welcome to join us!) 

    Our next girly geek dinner is this monday 24th April 2006 and we have loads of people attending... Women in Technology are our sponsors and all the details are on the website.  You need to sign up to attend, and unfortunately it is in London so anyone outside of London will either have to start their own sister girly geek dinner or come to London Big Smile

    And yes, An_Angel is Sarah Blow. And no punns on my surname coz I've heard them all before!

    Keep up the good work

  • Suzan DelBene: From referee to VP

    This was an interesting piece on women in technology as a whole.  The discussion on educating children in joining technology.  I disagreed with the comment about girls being put off by being called geeks.  I think fundamentally we need to remove the old fashioned derogitory ideals of a geek and give it a new image. 

    It was great to hear how Suzan worked her way through the company, how she views the changes that occurred within MS as well.  It would have been nice to hear more from Suzan on the technical side of things and the inside of Microsoft.  I would love to hear more from Suzan about her experiences of working with the teams within MS and where she sees MED going in the future.  (I wish I could have interviewed her... I have a few questions that would be interesting to put forward... )
