      Me too, though I can think of so many more! Ananda’s other episode of Digital Sisterhood also look great. The mind blowing thing about the lineup tonight, for me, is realizing that I’m part of a pattern or a movement bigger than I have been able to describe coherently even to myself. Women making strong connections with other women, geeks, poets, activists, strong fighters for social justice. And I feel like we do it on a particular *scale*. That we don’t need to be heading a multi million dollar social justice NGO to be significant on the radar. Yet even with out that grand scale, if you know what I mean, we’re visible…

    Amazing panelists!

    Unfortunately, I missed this, and the link goes to a 404. Is there a transcript available?
