Women in Linux
The Fedora Project, the project behind the Fedora Core Linux distribution, has introduced Fedora Women, a program to reach out to women who are interested in using and contributing to Fedora Core.
The post also mentions a few other sites as well. Though as a Fedora user myself, I guess I have a little bias when I say "ladies, go get yourself some Linux goodness".
In all seriousness though, the Linux world is a testosterone-charged boy's playground. In fact, the technology world at large is a testosterone-charged boy's playground. We need more women-folk. I'm not saying this because I'm one of those sad geek-dudes who almost never sees a member of the opposite sex. Just the opposite, in fact. The ITSS branch of the department I work in has a surprisingly large number of women. They are smart, talented, funny, and wonderful people who add SO much to the workplace. You ladies do have a place in the technology world, despite the stupid stereotypes. And hey, the more people that use Linux, the better. Nobody's stopping anybody from embracing the penguin of freedom.
So, to all of you wonderful chicas who read this blog: check out the sites mentioned here (if you aren't already a Linux user, and are interested in checking it out). Using Linux is definitely geeky, and you know what geekiness means on this site. If you are a Linux-Woman, give us a shout-out! The comment board is open.
