And were you aware* that DARPA is now being run by Dr. Regina Dugan? I had no idea. She is the first woman to direct that organization. I think I may have my front-runner for Ada Lovelace Day 2011. Here she is on YouTube, speaking at the 40th anniversary of the internet celebration at UCLA.
Have I seen the new Doctor Who? Why, yes! Is it awesome? Yes. Will I tell you about it? Definitely not until it airs in the US.
I followed this link from The Root, and I have to say, I have no idea what Erica Jong is on about either. First she uses racist language and then remind us that racism still exists…wha? All I know is, I want no part of this kind of “irony,” intentional or not. And what the fuck is a “Jewnitarian?” Never mind, I think if someone explained it to me, I would have to be offended.
Finally, check out this awesome Geek Feminism post on maintaining our self-confidence. Although specifically aimed at female geeks, this sounds like great advice for everyone.
