MeCommerce

by erinmystic

HobbyPrincess: Just let them speak

by misspaige (via)
I have one thing to say to the organizers of technology conferences: if you want to make sure that you include the "female perspective" to your program, just invite women to speak about the things they're doing. Putting smart people to discuss under a separate "women & technology" category is not doing the job.
