Just noticed that this blog has been around for over a year now.
It all started with a definition of Girl Geek (and a lot of good advice from the original girl geek dinner girl, Sarah Blow) on 9 August 2007 and over the months we’ve organised no less than 7 Brussels Girl Geek Dinners. A short overview:
