Just a girl

This is probably the most important thing you'll read about gender and technology. Ever. Bb blogged it (and Dorothea before her). My only critique would be that this doesn't just apply to linux, as the title states. This quite easily applies to women in any technology, including all sciences, and if you want to abstract it just a tiny bit more it really can be applied to most any situation in the world. As Val notes, it can also apply to any other minority group. I would go a step further and say it can apply to ANY group. Read it. Think about it. Learn from it.

I've been to a few of the St Louis Unix Users Group meeting and I am pleased that there are quite a few women that attend and participate.

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron.
- Dwight D Eisenhower
