Last weekend at SCaLE9x, I participated in the annual Weakest Geek competition, along with Pete Graner (Ubuntu kernel manager), Rob Spectre (Boxee developer), Don Marti (2010 Weakest Geek, defending his title), Kurt von Finck (Chief Community and Communications Officer at Monty Program), and Leigh Honeywell (SCaLE9x keynote speaker). Congratulations to Leigh Honeywell, the 2011 Weakest Geek! I also want to thank Leigh for giving me my only correct answer during the Weakest Geek competition. Thanks for the sisterly love!
March is Women's History Month and NPR is launching a mini-series about women and photography. They are inviting people to share photos and stories about the women who inspire them. If you want to participate, tag your favorite geeky woman (or favorite non-geeky woman) in Flickr with #nprwomen.
