Our last open thread of the year!

A question for you: what would have improved your geek life in 2010? What would be the one change that would have improved your geek year?

This is an open thread, thus, you are also welcome to discuss other topics, including but not limited to older posts.

Open thread: om nom nom… circuitry

It’s time for another Geek Feminist party! This party is in honour of our new blogger Courtney, who also writes for From Austin to A&M. You might also remember Courtney from Amanda Hess’s interview at The Sexist. She guest-posted here in September.

Courtney, I hope you enjoy this edible circuit, at least to look at!

Got any geek foodstuffs to share with Courtney?

This is also an open thread for discussion of older threads, threads you’d like to see, links you’d like to share, or other topics of your choice.

Open thread: hello newcomers

Let’s have a party. A better party than this party:

Several bloggers got keys to the Geek Feminism front page lately: Kylie of PodBlack Cat, Steph of 天高皇ä¼é¹…è¿œ and vegan about town and Restructure! of Restructure!. Welcome to them, you’ll see them posting as and when they have time and inspiration, like the rest of us.
