speaking of women geeks,
i was listening to a 2-3 week old TLLTS (the linux linc tech show),
and the guest was on because (at least in part) to the fact they are a female geek,
the guest was "Jeri Ellsworth"
and honestly , she is probably the most techy (not going to say geeky, as she would actaully probably have issue with that),
female I have ever seen.
she has a electron microscope in her basement, and does silcon IC experimentation/creation - for fun!!
and her first job out of school was building 400hp race cars,
and she built pipe bombs for fun as a kid (ok, so we all did that),
but it was a good podcast, one worth checking out, as are all the TLLTS podcasts,
oh, but she doesn't use linux at home :(
