Welcome to the Geek Feminism blog. I started this because I found I was often blogging about geek feminism issues at my personal blog(s) and wanted one central place to have these discussions. I also wanted somewhere to highlight the things that come up on the Geek Feminism Wiki: interesting new articles, not-so-great incidents, women doing kickass things in technology and gaming and fandom and so on.
This is a group blog. We currently have a handful of authors, each of whom will hopefully introduce themselves as they start posting. If you would like to join us, just let us know! Of course, you should have a history of blogging about geeky subjects from a feminist perspective.
As for me… I’m Kirrily Robert, but I go by “Skud” most places online. A few weeks ago I gave a keynote at the O’Reilly Open Source convention called Standing out in the crowd, on women in open source. Since then there’s been rather a lot of discussion (to say the least), and it seems like a good time for me to say “OK, I’ll blog about this stuff… over here.”
We’ll be decorating the place, settling in, and setting some groundrules over the next little while. Stay tuned!
