I have to admit reading Valleywag is one of my guilty-nerdy pleasures, but their post did not include some of the most important aspects of the night: The room was filled with some kick arse tech savvy gals who were not only interested in the Facebook Platform API (and in the Facebook language FBML…) but also knowing how to using Ruby on Rails as the web framework to write a Facebook app – and then sell it (take those Easter Eggs to the bank)! We also heard from some fabulous Facebook fem product designers and managers at Facebook.
I did jump at the opportunity to geek up with all the fun props at the dinner for a picture by Vanessa Naylon. As a 40-something girl geek mom of three boys – do ya think I could put myself in the running for the sexiest geek alive?
Maybe not, for now I am just happy to be hanging out with the other girl geeks.
