Try to use image sites like imgur.com, photobucket, etc. instead of direct from websites. It's the good netizen way to do things anyway. It may not have been the image itself, but the URL was reporting as malware. Just because Linux users are safe, doesn't mean we should let our fellow Windows users suffer malware infections just to see a picture we liked from a search.

My you are in the doldrums ain't you. :hmm:

No one is asking you to compete.

If you make the offer to help out ChickTech in your area, either as a chapter leader or just as a volunteer your name will be noted even if they do not take up your offer.
If they take up your offer then all sorts of doors will open. Yes you will have to get of your butt and do some free work.The upside is that your name will be noted most favourably by folk who matter in your area and nationally too.You will have the support of hundreds of women who will not only view you in a favourable light but will try to help you.An you can trust me on this, they will help you in all sorts of ways.You may not see the help they offer straight away but behind the scenes efforts will be made on your behalf.

Time to look at life and take action in a different way as your present way does not seem to be working. What have you got to loose ?

That's very true. I get bottles of whiskey, apple pies, yummy ,home made jam. Divorced husbands old suits. Loads of stuff.
And all I do is fix the odd light.plumbing leak .and shift their old white goods.

What are you most excited about in the realm of open source and cloud?

Technology is moving faster than ever before, and while it's painful for some, it's great for humanity. I imagine a future where we can use open source models and the technology we've built with open source software to tackle serious problems—from curing cancer to drastically reducing carbon emissions. Cloud computing is the foundation for self-driving cars, intelligent homes, and a host of applications that make life easier and better in so many ways. We're laying the foundation for a future that looks a lot different than it does now, and we're just scratching the surface of what's possible.

The re-hashes of the original book are done very well. So that could be viewed as a silver lining. B)

One key to recruiting and retaining more women in technology is representation: Organizations with women in visible leadership positions tend to attract other women. To recognize firms that both measure and actively work to change underrepresentation of women, the Anita Borg Institute (ABI), a nonprofit organization whose mission is to advance women in computing, released this month its annual list of top companies for women technologists leadership index.

Women In Security Speak Out On Why There Are Still So Few Of Them (2015)



Quote

Just 10% of information security pros worldwide are women today, according to the latest data from (ISC)2, despite the fact that women are getting more high-profile roles in the industry and that there are job opportunities aplenty. It's a reality that confounds and frustrates many women in the industry, who today represent a mix of researchers, chief information security officers, executives, and top government cyber security leaders.
While women make up a tiny fraction of the industry, the good news is that there are more of them with high-profile roles in security than ever before, a trend that was evident last month at the RSA Conference in San Francisco, where women in top cyber security official jobs at the US Department of Homeland Security, US-CERT, National Security Agency, the White House, and Department of Justice, were featured speakers, as well as security researchers-turned security executives and other corporate security execs.

Neat articles Goretsky. I thought this one deserved an extra bump. :breakfast:

Sharp, Shah Win 1st Women in Open Source Awards (2015)


Interview with winner of Red Hat's Women in Open Source Academic Award, Kesha Shah (2015)


Quote

As many have said, for us to have the most diverse ideas we need to have the most diverse backgrounds. Red Hat reinforces that sentiment today with the announcement of their first winner of the Women in Open Source, Academic Award: Kesha Shah.
A multitude of contributions to open source from women all over the world were evaluated, nominations were made, and finally, votes were cast and tallied for the two awards that comprise the Women in Open Source Award from Red Hat: the Community Award and the Academic Award.
The winner of the Women in Open Source, Community Award is Sarah Sharp. See our interview with her. Also, view all of the finalists for the awards.
Red Hat's hope is that the number of women contributing to open source grows by leaps and bounds in the coming years. Recognition is a great start.

Patricia Torvalds on computing



Quote

What made you interested in studying computer science and engineering?

(spoiler alert: it wasn't her father)

My interest in tech really grew throughout high school. I wanted to go into biology for a while, until around my sophomore year. I had a web design internship at the Portland VA after my sophomore year. And I took an engineering class called Exploratory Ventures, which sent an ROV into the Pacific ocean late in my sophomore year, but the turning point was probably when I was named a regional winner and national runner up for the NCWIT Aspirations in Computing award halfway through my junior year.

How open source helped one woman break into the tech industry (2015)




Quote

Can you describe your first interaction with technology?

I started putting my hands on computers at a very young age, 8 years old more or less, thanks to my mom. My parents run their own business and my mother is in charge of all accounting and management duties, so when my brother and I were young she decided to move her office to our house and take care of us (a pioneer of remote work, huh?). When she finished her daily work, she would always tell me to sit with her so that I could learn how to use the computer.
Then, when I was about 13 years old, there were many old pieces of hardware around my house that I decided to restore and use as a lab. In this lab I ran early GNU/Linux versions and such. That's when things started to get serious. :)


Neat. :breakfast:
