I was a little aprehensive about this event, and wasn't sure what to expect but I have to say it was immensely enjoyable and worked really well. I'm not sure we got an answer to the question but we went on some interesting journeys touching on whether we even like the phrase "girl geek", what is a geek (someone who bites the head of chickens), why more women aren't going into IT, what stops women going to conferences etc

I also won a prize, a copy of Web Standards Creativity: Innovations in Web Design with XHTML, CSS, and DOM Scripting with an introduction by Brighton's own Andy Budd. It looks like a good collection of topics by some knowledgable people.

All in all another great Girl Geek Dinner.
