Sexism in the tech world... Not the fact that this guy is complaining about the girl in his class who'd never heard of Linux. (That's completely understandable.) Totally the guy that thinks that this is a good reason to punch the girl in the face. 

And then you wonder why the tech world in general and cybersec in particular have trouble recruiting and retaining women.

Good men of IT, please point out the idiocy of statements that threaten violence against women (or anyone, for that matter!) when you see them so that a woman doesn't have to. That will go a long way towards making women feel safer in the community.

With all due respect, I think that guys are still more violent among each other, than with the fair sex. This just doesn't get too much attention on the news (you know, yawn, boring).

First night back in Scotland, a proper Glaswegian dinner: Shahi bahan (sp?) pizza, paneer pakora and haggis pakora. I also had a pint of Frosty Jacks cider. As you do.
