Kieran’s notes on SIGCHI 2005 hint at the role of women in CS and jeffe references some articles on the same subject. I hadn’t read Val Hensen’s HOWTO Encourage Women in Linux before; it’s quite good.
And Kieran’s right, there are more women in HCI, although I fear that we’ve pigeon holed them into a discipline that others don’t see as “real” or as “hardcore” computer science.
This is largely a reminder to myself. I think it’s easier to forget about these things having left academia.
