Kudos to the writer at Linux Journal for her excellent take on gender in open source software. I found her perspective to be a breath of fresh air, given all of the inane and often ignorant media blather about gender inequality in technology.
I've been in technology for more than twenty years. Along the way I've worked for and with many different women that have served in different roles. Some wrote or managed editorial content, while others were focused on the business side as marketing managers or vice presidents, and still others managed the back end and programming parts of the company.
They all had one thing in common though: THEY. JUST. DID. IT.
