- There’s a couple of interesting new blogs in and around the geek feminist space:
- Stemming is a new online community and collaborative blog supporting women and girls interested in science, tech, engineering, and math (the STEM fields).
- The Border House is a blog about diversity in gaming. They are actively seeking additional writers. Their post on internalised sexism comes recommended from our comments.
- Penny Red has the latest Feminist Carnival up. These are coming out every two weeks, submit feminist posts for consideration for future carnivals.
- Older women want tech toys for Christmas: a Logitech survery found that women over 50 want tech for Christmas. (Not that Logitech doesn’t have a dog in that fight…)
- A Special Issue of Interacting with Computers (Feminism and HCI): For our academic folk: a CFP, with abstracts required by February 28 2010 and full papers by June 1. “… Specifically, we are concerned with the design and evaluation of interactive systems that are imbued with sensitivity to the central commitments of feminism…”
- female programmers and programmers to be: Jeanne Boyarsky responds to some of Kathy Sierra’s twitters on, among other things, whether women speaking at conferences has any influence on the career choices of teenage girls.
- Professor of psychology David Anderegg thinks that given the negative stereotypes prevalent in most communities, it’s time to consign the words ‘nerd’ and ‘geek’ to the bin.
