The call for participation for linux.conf.au 2011 in Brisbane from January 24-29 is open, so I submitted a proposal to run a 1.5 hr Inkscape Tutorial. Here's the abstract I provided.
Currently sitting in the drupalmel meetup - Drupal Users of Melbourne gather to share thoughts, discoveries and challenges. It's good fun. The new digs at publicity works are very spacious, so if you've been wondering where to find fellow Drupal folk in Melbourne, consider adding the 2nd Tuesday of the month to your calendar.
Ada Lovelace Day was started last year in 2009 by Suw Charman. It's about celebrating, recording and uncovering the achievements, discoveries and special qualities of women in technology and science.
We are not Unicorns. We are everywhere. But our history is easily submerged, discounted and dismissed. Too easily forgotten.
Thanks Suw - this is an awe inspiring initiative. I salute you.
For Ada Lovelace Day 2010 I salute Jude Milhon.
