- Amanda Hess at The Sexist published a couple of interviews with gamer and SF historian Courtney Stoker, about geek feminism: Courtney Stoker on Feminist Geek and Make Your Dude-Dominated Subculture More Accessible to Women
- Michael Morris’s Special Cisco Live Contest – Hottest Booth Girl post is epic fail, save for a few decent dudes in the comments pointing out how insulting the contest was to both men and women.
- Shelby Knox is not impressed by the invisibility of women and women’s work in Google Doodles (the special Google logos honouring holidays and special events).
- Women and Growing Companies: Adriana Gardella links to several (largely US-based and focussed) initiatives to help businesswomen.
- Cool down, little girl: A dude starts to get it,
