Book: How to be a Geek Goddess
ROSE Blog: Rikki's Open Source Exchange
If you get your hands on a copy of the new No Starch book, How to be a Geek Goddess, I'd love to see your review of it. Just reading about it on the publisher's site gave me a chuckle:
" How to Be a Geek Goddess shows you how to sort out technology decisions (and find those cute shoes online) without ever having to ask a man."
The description on Amazon.com made me laugh outloud (or, as the kids say, LOL):
"Are you tired of waiting for your husband to install that wireless network?"
Originally, I ran across this book title when I saw a link to an Infozine book description:
" How to Be a Geek Goddess shows every woman how to sort out the complicated world of technology."
Oh it's a complicated world of technology out there, but I'm not convinced that my gender has anything to do with it. On the other hand, if you do read this book and think it's packed with useful tips for the less-technically inclined, let me know – I can think of a few men and women in my life who might appreciate it.comments powered by Disqus
