"The Coming of the Nerdettes"

Over at technewsworld.com, Katherine Noyes wrote a blog about a recent Newsweek article, "Revenge of the Nerdette." I considered mentioning the Newsweek article last week, but I didn't think it was particularly newsworthy – the concept of "Meet the Nerd Girls: they're smart, they're techie and they're hot" didn't say anything new or revolutionary to me. Basically, it rehashed the stereotype that a person can't be attractive and tech-savvy and intelligent and, *gasp*, a woman. Katherine's blog did a nice job of integrating comments and reactions to the original article, though, so I thought I'd pass it along.
