Video: Women Techmakers: Make your passion.
#wtm   #developers   #womentechmakers  

Last month 11,000 technical women attended 125 events across 52 countries to build greater visibility, community, and resources for women in technology.

Today we're excited to debut a video featuring innovative women leaders who share their personal stories, solutions, and impact on the technology industry.

I know some great makers; any of you out there participating in this?
 
In case you haven’t heard, we’re running a contest on Hackaday Projects for the best Sci-Fi build. We’re a little under two weeks until the deadline for the contest and so far there are a lot of great entries (and lots of great prizes still up for grabs).…

I have been (and probably remain) pretty oblivious to this sort of stuff:
 
21 men (boys) who lost their chances

Hilarious anecdotal list of cases where boys were totally clueless about the signals given by girls who were interested to take it to the next level. Looking back on those times, being older and mature now, makes you wonder how boys can sometimes be so oblivious of the signals girls give!

I really would hope that anyone acting on these cues would have the common decency to, you know, actually get clear consent before taking things further.  There's still a huge gap between "can you help me unzip this skirt" and sticking your hand up said skirt.

First-world problems, sure, but do we have to suffer so many of them? Show everyone how you really feel: http://j.mp/1r2Oizh

Is it functional? That could come in handy for waiting in line at cons.

A Ruben's Tube is a pretty neat project/physics demo; this builds on that by adding another dimension:

Great one from XKCD on free speech:
 
The alt text is awesome:

I can't remember where I heard this, but someone once said that defending a position by citing free speech is sort of the ultimate concession; you're saying that the most compelling thing you can say for your position is that it's not literally illegal to express.

Books, much like cowbell, can only be treated by more books.
