This Friday I am returning briefly to my favorite city, Copenhagen, only to shoot off again and go on vacation for the first time in years (that's a whole post in and of itself). On Saturday it turns out that there will be a event called Geek Girl Meetup Copenhagen (in Danish). There was such a huge response that the organizers had to close registration until they could find a larger venue. Hell yeah!
I signed up out of reflex even though it will be largely in Danish (um, jeg taler ikke Dansk?). I mean, I'm a geek. And I'm a girl. And all of the geek girls I know in Copenhagen are going too (and apparently a ton who I don't know). Even if I can't understand many of the sessions, I'll be spending my time chatting up with other girls who identify as geeks. Then today, one of those friends, Mary, went ahead and posted something thoughtful about it all, passing on Henriette Weber's blog baton. I do indeed have some thoughts on geekiness. (Jeez, Mary, making me blog and all.) Read more about To Be A Geek - Geek Girl Meetup CPH
