Women of OpenStack at Boston Summit

The low ratio of women in engineering has always been rather obvious to me, but with the advent of things like Girls Who Code and #ilooklikeanengineer, the gender gap has become part of a larger dialogue about diversity in engineering. As a population, we need to think with all of our brain power, and that includes people of all types, from all walks of life.

Why Millennials Don’t Think In Boxes

I was born in the mid-80s. I started breaking down computers quite early and I had PSTN internet by the time I was 16 (having frequent arguments with my parents when they regularly disconnected me in order to hold meaningless important conversations with other members of our extended Greek family).
