It’s encouraging to see this kind of thing happening in the technology sector. Webstock had a similar scholarship program that I encouraged Sarah to apply for; aimed at ‘the underrepresented in the industry’, she, as a woman living in rural Western Australia, was a shoo-in. And as a consequence, she went to the conference and I didn’t. Now, since I know she doesn’t have the time to hack on GNOME, why don’t some of you other geek gals stay in and get some experience this summer while all your friends are sunbathing topless in Greece? It’ll be good for you.
Wait, did I just recommend that?
