Re: Another "Women in Open Source" Session
It went pretty well :-). Room was full of supporters. I plugged the
success of Debian-Women a bit, so we might expect to see more
newbies. At the end one of the panelists proposed a general
discussion list about Women in Open Source and we asked for a show of
hands and saw 100% interest (about 200 people, including Larry Wall
and other prominent FOSS leaders). Still working out the best place
to host it, but we have an offer from OSI (which would be called
email@example.com). They did an audio recording of it
(videographers not available) so we'll have that to offer DW for its
Meanwhile, I had proposed a firstname.lastname@example.org list after my 5 minute
lottery lightning talk at ApacheCon EU went over extremely well.
There has been quite a lot of "debate" about the idea at the ASF
Board level, and they've started a private (archived but not
publicly) list for the women already at Apache to discuss how we
would like to proceed...so, progress! Unless you count the comment
that the list should be called "Apache Squaws" :-).
