I Want Better Geeking

One of my greatest joys in life is learning from excellent geeks. I love it. I groove on it. It makes me happy … downright joyous … to geek out.

I very selfishly want to enhance the quality of geeking.

And how can I, how can we, enhance the quality of geeking?

Simple, we increase the population from which we draw the excellent geeks and we'll get better geeks and be better geeks.

So, if we make high tech a place where women and people of color can thrive, then we all win. We get a bigger population in which to find excellence. We get more amazing geeks. We get better conferences. We get better technology. We get better personal experiences.

So, please join me in interacting with all people in tech with respect. Please join me in doing a little extra to make women and people of color feel included in the geek culture of creating amazing things and pushing boundaries.

Please join me in celebrating excellent geeks of all types (and type systems … :-) )
