We had our last rehearsals in Attila (old shoe factory) over the weekend. Gonna miss my little corner in this practice hall. It's been six whole years! (we move to a new site for next season). Couple more practices at the university before our concerts: http://taso.fi/index.php/en/konsertit/tulevat-konsertit

When I was younger, I didn't think so much about being "woman in tech". I just did what I enjoyed doing (and had fun beating the boys while at it). Nowadays it's such a constant topic, and while I get its importance (and realize that I'm luckier/more privileged than many other "women in tech"), the focus shouldn't be diversity for the sake of diversity. It isn't about trying to get the tech workforce to be 50% female just because we make up ~half the population. It should be about inclusiveness, and providing an environment that everyone can belong, regardless of gender.

"I don’t want to 'Be Diverse,' I just want to be."
As a "woman in tech," I've avoided talking about diversity because I was afraid it would make me worse at my job. Here's why.

Even though many of us have moved on to different things, we can still have a Jolla family reunion once in a while :)

How my cartoon style changed through the years (from 2007)... southpark, faceyourmanga, androidify, codebits bot, meego, pixelated by Jari, bitstrips, and most recently powerpuffyourself

(some things remain the same: drumsticks, gadgets, glasses, something purple...)
