Women: the Technology Bell(e)wether

01 November 2005

When I first arrived at RubyConf, one of the first people I met said, “Wow. I think you’re the first woman ever at a RubyConf.”

Since there were six women at RubyConf, I can’t say as I’m the first, since we all arrived at the same time, really.

But, as I put it, “women are the technology bell(e)wether.” If you start seeing women adopting a new technology, it’s really about to take off.

So, bellewethers are us.
