I have just started a new project, The Women In Technology.
The goals of the project include:
- Recognizing women who are pursuing careers in technology;
- Encouraging young women to pursue careers in technology;
- Showing by example how to write a blog about women;
- Encouraging women not in technology to create their own blogs;
- And, most important, encouraging the survivors of our Fallen Soldiers to write about themselves and their Fallen Soldier.
This project will be done as part of the Chay Project.
By this post I am inviting Isabel to join me as a co-founder of the project, and I will also extend the invitation via email.
By the way, this is a reminder that those who provide links via del.icio.us provide a valuable service. This is especially true of people such as the Redmonker’s who follow many, many, blogs and sites. I thank them for their service to the community.
While I have been thinking of starting this project for the last few weeks, it was Steve’s link that prompted me to so, and I thank him for that.
All are welcome to participate, and I hope this blog will soon evolve into a multi-author blog.
The URL of the project is thewit.wordpress.com, which should be read as TheWIT.wordpress.com, as these women are fellow members of The Wayward Internet Technologists, the wayward-word-press-announce: The Wayward Internet Technologists, the TWITs.
