So we ended up in today’s Guardian. As soon as I manage to get a copy of the article I’ll put a pic up on here of it… However in the meantime you can also read it here: Geek Goddess. To be honest the start of this article comes across as a bit ra ra… but really we are all very geeky and down to earth. I don’t want Girl Geeks being put off by the tone of the article so I thought I’d mention that now.
And I also wanted to bring to light that it’s not just us adults that are being geeky online. There are youngsters too just starting out their journey into blogging! A great example of a student just starting out is: Whatever Things
a student from a central London School. Her 2 poems there are great and well worth a read. Feel free to give her feedback and support her learning! The idea of getting students to blog as part of their coursework on this occasion was brough to you by DigitalMaverick, aka Drew Buddie. He’s one of a few teachers that are encouraging their students to get into technology and a great role model to other teachers!
As you read in the article we do have a couple of events coming up including our 3 year anniversary event at Google and we will announce the sign up details for that here on this website at the end of july (the anniversary event is towards the end of August) Before that we also have an event in planning on the 25th June. The details for that event will also be placed on this site.
Drop Zone movie full If you are interested in speaking at one of our events or are intersted in sponsoring one of our events then please do get in contact with us. (all contact information is on our contact us page! )
Have a great day and keep being geeky!

Glad the article finally came out Sarah. Shame there’s no picture, after all that posing of you in odd locations!
But I see the article is in the Life & Style section, under “Women”. Not under the Technology or Science section. Which is a big shame, and speaks volumes about the current state of society if the decision was unconscious!
Very nice article. I hope it will lead to even more awareness of the GGDs. I did notice last week that somehow, there were quite a few more women at the London Geek Dinner, and apparently this was because some of them assumed the GeekDinner and the GirlGeekDinner were either the same, or somehow related to each other more closely than it actually is.
@Cristiano, I’m sure it’s a bonus on both sides to get more Girls to the Geek Dinners too! We try to forward the info on where possible. And I try to send out the Geek Dinner and other event info for London tech events out to our Girls but it’s all about time and finding a common location to source the info. (I tend to go with Upcoming for the events)
