Sarah asked whether we should have a women’s only geek dinner. My immediate reaction to these suggestions is usually no, I tend to react against anything that restricts its audience in any way. For me, I’d ask the question differently – should there be a dinner to encourage a Women in Technology network (and there appears to be a UK section). But should it be restricted to women by design, with women only speakers etc? I wouldn’t like to think so. Otherwise, I support this.
