Communications. Connections. Transitions.
For good reason I’m drawn to hiring female tech people (ms geekys).
I can tell right away, if I place an ad, if the response is from a male or female. The women tend to respond to what you’re looking for and
pay more attention to your details, like what you want done and what you want to pay.
I enjoyed reading this. Why can’t we men come along? I grew up in a milieu of print production where we worked with hot metal and 100% of those involved were male, 90% of whom smoked pipes. Today I’m still tangentially involved. There’s no hot metal and 99% are women and 0% smoke pipes. These gals are natural computer geeks. Don’t ask me to explain why. I live in Africa. It’s just stopped raining and the small frogs in the surrounding trees and shrubbery have set up their high-pitched chorus of: Geek! Geek! Geek! At last it all makes sense.
Thanks for your observations, RT. Not to be sexist, but indeed, in my experience, women are better listeners. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that you’re noticing this.
Geek, Geek, Geek — I can hear those African frogs. Glad it’s all fallen into place at last. And — say Hi for me to those naturally geeky women. I bet I know some of them!
Great write-up Wanda!
I’m delighted you enjoyed the conference. I wonder if there’s enough readership for a “Geek Girl Examiner”?
Thanks Graham – now I’ll never hear frogs the same way again.
