    Just got this via Geeks Are Sexy, and thought I’d share. It’s a great gek girl manifesto, in the first person.

    I’m leaving my job next year, which is in tech support, and we just posted it up, but all of the applicants so far have been male. Any tips for getting it out there to the females too? I don’t know if Geek Feminism or Linux Chix has some kind of job board or something.

    Here’s a really cool feminist computing project:

    Frances Hugle was a computer scientist and engineer who developed many processes and pieces of equipment under secret military contract while at Baldwin in the 1950s.
    She went on to become a Silicon Valley pioneer, including co-founding Siliconix as its first Director of Research. Recently, some of her papers were recovered from a burn pile.
    Her daughter and others are trying to raise money to have the papers preserved, electronically archived, and published. They are a rare record of the work of a female computerscientist in the
    1950s, and may become lost forever if money is not raised to preserve them.
    If you could give any money OR put a link to this project on your blog/twitter/Facebook/website/etc, that would be a great help.

    Here is the link: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/puredogma/the-inventions-of-frances-hugle?ref=live

    Thank you so much.
