Just a quick note to announce an interview with geek girls Britt, Ine and me in tomorrow’s De Morgen (Flemish newspaper). If you can scan and upload the article and/or relay the url of the online version to us, please drop a line in the comments.
And for the sake of completion: there was an article in Het Laatste Nieuws last Monday, too. Will upload it here in the coming days.
Over Girl Geeks, 70% en (verloren) zakken @ LamaZone: “Fijne editie, licht andere crowd, wat jongere dames, een smakelijk thema mét schokkend cijfermateriaal (”70% van alle cyberseks gebeurt tijdens de werkuren”) wat leidde tot allerhande theorieën en ter plaatse opgerichte onderzoeksteams, minder mannen, een bruudruuster en een fotoset door eMich.
Brussels Girl Geek Dinner #2… @ Emich: “Jamais je ne me serais imaginé de m’être fait déposer chez moi par 2 filles et de sur la route parler d’entre autre Python, Ruby, Java ou encore de Nabaztag-like open source.”
Brussels Girl Geek Dinner #2 @ Imke Dielen: “We genoten van ons gesprek met de Sensoa dame, over campagnes en media en al de grote mogelijkheden. Maar ook de nieuwe contacten van het eerste dinner werden weer aangehaald [...]”
Blogging dentists and Belgian harmony at the second Girl Geek Dinner @ Theicecreamdebate: “I enjoyed myself at the second girl geek dinner. Not in the least because of the topics we discussed. Sexuality and the internet, being the only girl on the work floor and how to cope,… And as a matter of fact, there were French, Flemish and English speaking people and we all connected.”
Although at first I was a bit worried about the last minute cancellations, the second edition went well. For me personally it was an honour to finally meet Appelogen’s Uw Moeder for real.
Emich, one of the few men present, has already uploaded the pictures to the Brusselsgirlgeekdinner2 Flickr Set.
UPDATE: the owner of the bag has been identified! Thanks Lama!
Want to join us? Cold food and some drinks plus the goodies bag are for free if your name is on the list. So hurry up and subscribe by using the “edit this page” feature of the Brussels Girl Geek Dinner 2 wiki page. The password is sacoche.
Special thanks to all the companies out there who helped fill the goodie bag with funny and/or usefull stuff for the ladies: Microsoft, Sensoa, Belgacom Skynet, Het Belang Van Limburg, JobAt.
I’m not telling what’s inside the bag, but just like last time we’ll have one special hot item to give away during a sweepstake.
We’re going to toy around a bit with Windows Live Photo Gallery, especially with the “stitching” feature. So if you’re a photographer, please bring your gear with you.

Thanks in advance!
For the first edition, we created a Facebook Event, resulting in a mix of subscriptions via Facebook and via the Wiki.
For the second edition, there was another Facebook Event page, but this time almost everyone used the new wiki to subscribe.
Karen Van Godtsenhoven suggested to create a Facebook Group just for the Brussels Girl Geeks and hey presto: here it is. Just see it as an extra communication channel and a quick way to spread the word. The events are now part of the group.
In case you get confused: for Brussels Girl Geek Dinner #2 we’re still using the wiki to subscribe. Girl Geek Dinners are free for everyone who subscribed, but the number is limited to 40.
Currently 25 girls and 4 boys have subscribed. Use the “edit this page” function of the wiki to add your name to the list. The password is sacoche.
She will bring some powerpoint slides with her, and all we need now is a beamer and maybe also a portable screen. If you can bring one on 13 November, let us know in the comments.
PS I’ve just been told that beamer is an example of an example of pseudo-anglicism in a number of languages including German and Dutch. What we really mean is a portable video projector.
UPDATE: We got one. Thanks, Dorien!
