A recent post by The Identity Woman alerted me to the upcoming unconference, October 22-23, 2007, in Mountain View, CA at the Computer History Museum. In light of the ongoing discussions on women in technology, it’s encouraging to see further promotion of women-oriented geek events. In their words:

The She’s Geeky (un)conference will provide an agenda-free and friendly environment for women who not only care about building technology that is useful for people, but who also want to encourage more women to get involved.

She’sGeeky includes a registration wiki with profiles of planned attendees from all walks of the technology world, so the unconference topics should be fantastic.

In addition to the alert about She’s Geeky, The Identity Woman also mentioned O’Reilly’s ongoing, well-written September article series about Women in Technology: Hear Us Roar. O’Reilly’s series and the discussions about them are very strong, and cover some excellent topics. I hope this dialogue continues into the conferences and topics of 2008.
