||To Sir, with Love: How To Get More Women Involved in Open Source|
|Subject:||Wow, Selena, I am impressed!|
I have only known a handful of true, 100% geeks during my thirty four year involvement in software. There were, I believe, three women who graduated along with me in the Computer Science program back in the seventies. All three of them were very smart, but I would not label any of them as geeks. I have known a lot of very good software engineers, and even among them, I would only label a handful of them as real geeks. But the descriptions you gave, whether actual events or hyped up exaggerations of real events definitely qualify, not only as geek events, but stereotypical geek events - more intense than any I have known.
