Women who do tech talk it too

An out of the ordinary email turned up on the Bristol Wireless mailing list today. Forwarded by BW volunteer Sean, it had originally been posted to the UK Riders list by our friend Laura Whitehead, who’s a freelance web designer.

Laura’s been in contact with Allyson Kapin who is organising Women Who Tech Telesummit which is taking place on March 31st. The telesummit’s sessions run from 11AM to 6:15PM EST which, Laura points out, is not ideal for London time: EST is 5 hours behind Greenwich Mean Time (after checking the times for daylight saving times in the UK and USA, the time difference should still be 5 hours – Ed.).

The telesummit will happen via conference call and webinar and will feature 2 one-hour long panels at a time.

Here at Bristol Wireless, we’re pleased to see there’s an open source software session. 🙂

Full details of the telesummit can be seen at the Women Who Tech website.

    Hi all at BW, will try to do some of the sessions at Women who Tech (especially the Open Source ones) will let you know, if I do and how it all goes! Keep up the good work!

    Thanx for this one, will be having a good look at the site.

    btw/ I think a comma fell off the page somewhere….took a while to read that headline!

    I pondered on a comma for the title for a long time: they’re not as troublesome as full-stops, which roll off the page and disappear under the furniture… 😉
