Follow along as I to try to express my gratitude and share a little about each of these women in hopes that you too can understand, appreciate, and come to admire these women and why I consider these women my mentors In, Near, and Around Ubuntu.
Akkana Peck (akk) - I had the opportunity to meet Akkana at OSCON last year though we had talked/chatted in IRC prior to that. Akkana is an excellent public speaker and funny as heck too! Anyone who can make me laugh and understand GRUB a little more in under 5 minutes is awesome in my book. (side note - Her mom is cool too!!!)
She's Geeky is coming to the Bay Area! January 29-31 at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, CA.
Are you a woman? Are you a Geek? This event is for you! We invite women from a diverse array of technological fields and those doing technology within non-technical fields. It's a great "unconference" and a great chance to meet up with fellow geeky women, learn from them and share your own areas of expertise.
