To support breast cancer awareness (and the 5th edition of Pink Ribbon Magazine) a few dozen of my Sanoma Media colleagues have volunteered to pose nude with the magazine. Among them virtually every magazine editor and a couple of men, too.
During #BGGD46, girl geeks can line up for the same photo shoot (if they want too, of course). It’s an all-female professional photo crew and they’re very pleasant to work with. By the way, do you recognise the girl geek in this gallery?
Don’t forget: Thursday 22 September is Brussels Girl Geek Dinner #46, the Charity Edition.
Can’t make it? No problem, remove your name from the attendees list to give the reserves a chance. There are about 20 of them, and we’re hoping to get them all in.

During #BGGD45 the battle for the Sony Tablets was fierce. Eventually we had 4 winners.
But there was yet another tablet to win, with a haiku contest. This is the winning tweet, by @LoreDierickx.
Lore, if you read this: email/DM your post address to Clo so Sony can take care of the handling and delivery of your Tablet./
Very curious what their experiences with the Sony Tablet are. If you find any girl geek reviews, please post them in the comments.
i.materialise is a creation and 3Dprinting service that enables people with a creative mind to create unique, customised and beautiful products. The girl geeks visited them in their early days, back in november 2009. Many of the girl geeks envisioned using the technology to create unique jewelry pieces.
Well, the 3D printed jewels have arrived. More and more designers worldwide are using 3Dprinting to create wonderful pieces of art. We would like to present a couple of those on the next Girl Geeks night. We look forward to your feedback. Enjoy girls!
Tonight, at the reception desk, there are 25 freshly printed 3D jewels – just for the ladies. Please pick one as you arrive and let us all know on Twitter, Facebook, your blog etc what you think of it!
During the IFA fair (the world’s largest and most important trade fair for consumer electronics and household appliances) Sony threw their answer on the tablet pile: the Sony Tablet. And they want to have your thoughts on the newborn during Brussels Girl Geek Dinner #45. No boring you to death with 500 slides, but an entertaining evening. Well, let’s be honest, it’s the Sony people who will be entertained by you!
You’ll be fighting a geek battle: you and your buddy will fight a number of cross-category challenges against the other teams. Pop quiz, videogaming, the occasional app to download and use, uploading a picture…
Two top geeks will win a Sony Tablet at the end of the evening. And there’s an additional challenge for the more
creative geek who’s not in a combative mood. A part from the prizes, who has never wanted to beat another geek at their own game?
Course of the evening
- 18.30 welcome and explanation of the rules of the game
- 19.00 walking buffet – find your buddy – check out the list of challenges
- 19.45 battle!
- +/- 22.00 finals and award presentation
The Event Lounge hosts the Sony open days at the same time, so you’ll have a chance to see the latest products that’ll hit the AV-market in the coming months.
