Liz over at mamamusings has been thinking about women and social software and related issues: lack of women speakers, minority of women in technology, etc. I dug through my archives for some related posts from August 2001 and I know this is a still an issue. Though I've been speaking at lots of conferences, there aren't many other women up there on the podiums with me. I know that conference organizers would like to have more women speakers, so we need more women to submit proposals. You have until May 15, 2003 to submit a proposal for O'Reilly's Mac OSX Conference 2003. And they're still looking for proposals for lightning talks at the 2003 O'Reilly Open Source Convention. Geek girls, get in gear! And if you know of other conferences looking for speakers, let me know and I'll post them here.
