I’m a geek. I know, it’s shocking, but there you have it. I am a geek. And I’m a woman, or just for the alliteration, a girl.
I’m also a feminist – that is I believe that women and men should be equal and we have a long way to go to get there.

I recently spent the a weekend, well six days really, in the company of close to 6,000 fellow geeks. At CONvergence science fiction convention – 4 days of convention plus set up and tear down. It was a wonderful break from the pressures of the real world – the world that tells me daily to hide my geekiness. That’s not to say that there weren’t pressures. Actually quite the opposite. Both Sweetie and I are department heads, meaning we are two of the people responsible for making sure that the weekend goes off without a hitch. There were hitches, but that’s not what I want to talk about.
