Geek Girl Blogger - Cathy McCaughan

Hey there readers of GGB. I am sorry there hasn’t been any new surveys since the 5th of this month, and it is now the 25th. Ah, that’s 20 days! But there were other things like the dinner. Anyway, I enjoyed doing the job of creating the GGB article again, and Cathy McCaughan’s survey in particular was very enjoyable! Make sure you read her response to what her motivation for blogging is. Her blog is also really enjoyable to read. Don’t lose interest in this survey because of her occupation as a mom (mum) when you may have expected some fancy tech title. She is indeed a tech girl and her occupation as a mom is one of the most important jobs out there, so much respect for that.    Toodles!

Inaugural Geek Girl Dinner Report



On the 28th of August 2008, about two weeks ago, Tim and I attended the Girl Geek Dinner in Brisbane which was held at a Turkish restaurant.

The food was amazing!! It was worth going that night just for the food, seriously. But, besides the food, it was really interesting to spend that time with other women who are also involved in computer related work. Some people showed up already knowing other people there, others showed up not knowing anyone… it was geek_girl_dinner_foodinteresting to observe the different ways everyone interacted with one another. We’re all so different! I was pretty quiet, but I wasn’t afraid to make conversation with other people, I actually enjoyed talking to some of the other girls during the night. However different from me, some ladies were quite loud and outgoing. Some ladies moved around and talked to most of the girls who showed up, whereas others stayed in their own seat the whole night and just talked with the girls sitting near them. But either way, everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves and I’m certain everyone loved the food.
