Ada Lovelace day 24 March 2010 - Kitty Spinda

Let me introduce Kitty to you. At the inaugural Brisbane Girl Geek Dinner, to which I took Amanda who worked for me, I wore my kilt and took photos of the ladies there. Bronwen Zande had done a great job organising it IMGP7128 edited and while Amanda was sitting down chatting I was wandering around taking photos and talking. When I finally sat down next to Amanda the seat on the other side was taken by a lovely young platinum blonde haired lady. She was very personable and though she was there with her friend Jenine spent most of the night talking to me. By the end of the night I had decided to hire her.

Random stuff - and politics

What ever you do or don’t like about the Rudd Government (or is that the Labour Government? We tend to blur these things, but we shouldn’t) this little story should give you some insight into the man Kevin Rudd. Now lets see if he follows through!

Update - the group 78 people were forcible evicted.

Mollom – the Drupal spam management system created by the creator of Drupal Dries Buytaert - has blocked 100 Million spams. We use it here but recently its been letting a few through on the comment system. so our apologies for that.

What is your reason/motivation for blogging?

I blog to promote my book 'Tech girls are chic, not just geek' - which is a not for profit project aimed at smashing the geek stereotype and encourage school girls to consider a career in Information Technology. The book is distributed free to school girls across Australia, with 8000 distributed in Australia and overseas since March 2008. I use the blog as a way to communicate the various activities that involve the book (such as careers events and expos where it is distributed for free). I dont know how many people read it but at least it is a way for me to keep track of everything that happens.
