roundup2 Here is a randomly ordered selection of stuff that I thought was cool or useful.

Geek Girl Blogger - Sarah Katz

This weeks GGB has a very interesting job, and although she isn’t a frequent blogger on her personal website, perhaps being featured in the GGB series has inspired her to use her blog more often. Not that I, Amanda, have done any better. My personal blog is pretty much un-used… I still only have intentions to use it. But when I do, I’ll probably end up writing this article about my own survey! Anyhow, today we have the lovely Sarah Katz:

What is your reason/motivation for blogging?

I usually like to post interesting links that I have found online or little blurbs about what I’m up to.

What is it that you find yourself blogging about, mostly the same stuff or does it vary?

I mostly write about the same variety of things. (Cool links, funny stories, what I’m doing during the day)

Geek Girl Dinner 2 - Kitty's Report

The atmosphere was buzzing as I stepped into the Verve Café. It was the Girl Geek Dinners Brisbanesecond Brisbane Geek Girl Dinner, and it has grown since the last one! There were many familiar faces, and a sea of new ones. My friend Dani and I were  greeted by Bronwen when we arrived, and instinctively made our way to the bar. $5 fire engines? Who can go wrong with that? There were two long tables dedicated to Geek Girls, and the group filled both :). So we parked ourselves beside Jenine – Jenine and I go way back.
