Study – Women’s Recommendation Letters hurt career chances

Interesting and counter-intuitive article that recommendation letters for women can actually hurt their reputations.  It’s sad but true how words like nurturing and caring can be career limiting when aggressive and powerful are the more desired traits in leaders.  For me the balance is to be strong and passionate without crossing over into the witch category; being able to live with myself and face the mirror every day while feeling like a decent human being is more important conquering at all costs.  Fortunately, lots of great female role models out there in business these days.

Malaysia’s Ministry of Education OSS Day, Oct. 12 – 13

with 8 comments

I found out 2 days ago that I will be traveling to Malaysia to attend this wonderful event! I will be giving a presentation on Ubuntu in Education on Wednesday morning. The community there is very FOSS and Ubuntu friendly so it’s a great opportunity to show just how important they are to us. I’m really looking forward to the trip and the opportunity to meet the LoCo team there. If you are near Kuala Lumpur maybe I’ll get to meet you too.

In case you ever doubt that your work is making a difference, just take a look at this growing list of schools using Ubuntu and its derivatives. And an entire project of kids building their own machines to take home and use after completing class – impressive!

Feel free to add other schools and learning projects you know about.
