9eek 9oddess

Very disappointing at Nexus today. Lo and behold, as always at events of such nature, girls are totally under represented! I wish I could see more girls, afterall, technology is what really makes the world continue to spin on its axis (in my opinion)...

We need to get more girls involved in being geeky. Get rid of the stigma that geeky is synonymous to an unwanted nerdy old maid. They are 2 VERY different things. Nothing wrong with being geeky. Can enjoy technology, be a geek yet be a girl! NOT mutually exclusive. I love technology, but I love shopping just as much. Proud to say I have my 200 pairs of shoes, my wardrobe full of clothes, but I still have this love for gadgets...

Also noticed even as panelists, women very underrepresented, save for Stomp and Cnet Asia.

Anyway, so I was looking at Chillicraps' blog. I think it's very funny how he superimposed his pau on the Mac's set meal. One thing I do need to learn. Photoshop. I have it on my MacBook but I haven't even unzipped the file. This summer holiday must get started.

Ok I'll pen more when my eyelids are lighter... toodles!

Well, maybe because most gals are not so interested in gadgets and IT stuff.

But How can it BBEEEEE?? Is it inherent in biological make up!!!!??

Bjorn said...

din know you are 9eeky.. and we shelved this idea once when we did e27 cos there were too few pple to do it, 'cept for raine, gwen and michelle...

eStee said...

that leaves me 5 days... I don't think I have the time. If it is due in a month, I'll be up for it for SURE. Hmmm let me know if more come up. I'm game..

raine said...

hey babe, yeah.. we were talking abt it yest and i really think we could do something about it.. will be cool if we could meet the ladies up say sometime apr 6th - 8th to talk abt it. u free?

eStee said...

The first draft is due by the end of this month! Leaves us a couple of days... we're not gonna be able to meet this submission date!

Meow said...

hey estee! hahaha! i am sorry! Maybe you girls are too last minute - we closed registration about a week before! anyway, will tty to improve, maybe we will have a pink newsletter for the next nexus

eStee said...

Meow: That's a real pity! I've got a lot of good ideas. Need people who dare! :(

Priscilla said...

I think it doesn't matter. We're essentially the same anyway- geeks. Male female...doesn't matter lah.

And I agree with Meow! Pink flyers help! Add glitter if the budget allows!

came here via the e27 blog. i was at nexus too and after having attended many such events in the past, i'm amazed at the lack of female presence. if you're interested in getting some girly geekiness going in singapore, drop me a line at sherene [dot] jose [at] gmail [dot] com :)

ar zhou said...

why female geeks rule male geeks..... basic law of supply and demand... >.<

Sharon said...

I liked your blog. I'm nearly 40, an IT student, into gaming and web design and I love my gadgets. On the other hand, I like girlie lunches and chocolate. But I think I'd give up the lunches before my XBox 360! (maybe not the chocolate though)

raine said...

hey geek babes out there,

we should totally have a gathering! and get something similar started..

i'm seeing that there is really a pool of tech babes out there~ we shld have a platform to get together~

eStee said...

Absolutely! Hey I have internet retail startup idea. Any one interested?

SCZ said...

I'm not much for gadgets, but design and web programming is definitely my thing. (And half my bread and butter!) I'm out of SG at the mo, but will be building a couple shopping sites for friends when I'm back. I'm a bit miffed I missed the Nexus event by a week!

eStee said...

Scz: i lot of people doing internet retail now? I have a novel business concept, not sure if it'll fly. If I can get enough people psyched up about making it work, I'm willing to put $$ down, I will think about it and bounce it off some friends.. :)

praise said...

yeah i agree. nexus was totally male dominated. we should have women 2.0.

|ra!ne| said...
