.51 – Geekspace for Women was created because at first glance, I couldn’t find a site to give me what I wanted. (UPDATE: there’s a heck of a lot more of ‘em now!)

As a constant (translation: interminable) surfer of the web, I visit countless sites looking for the latest and greatest in technology, science, science fiction, games, ad infinitum. If it’s geeky, I want to know about it. One day, I added “women” to my search parameters in my trusty Do No Evil Search Engine, and was shocked to discover that I *really* had to dig for the kind of information I wanted.

Here on .51, I’ll be including:

  • interviews with women who consider themselves geeks in one way or another, and are doing amazing things
  • information about organizations of a technical nature for women
  • reviews of music produced by, created by, or featuring women
  • science fiction in its many forms – written, posted, on screen, on the web, etc.
  • information and opinions about gaming, HOWTOs, ham radio and computing
  • whatever I find geeky. (Admittedly, it’s a broad category, but it gives me a great deal of latitude.)

If there’s something missing that should be here, speak up!

Dedication

Both my grandmothers were exceptional women. One was a Navy nurse who became a pioneering Lamaze instructor early in that movement, and the other was a lifelong educator who worked variously as a teacher, counselor, and school administrator. Both were raised in the Deep South in the 1930s and ’40s, and both pushed against the limitations forced on black women at the time. I grew up knowing that they had high standards for me, and that they wanted me to live up to their hard-working ideals. Circumstances outside all our control made sure that we didn’t spend as much time together as we all would have hoped.

When I think about the kind of woman I am, and the kinds of things I have achieved and continue to pursue, I realize that I owe a great deal to them. They never once told me that I couldn’t be something I wanted to be, and never once belittled who I’d become. Even during those times when I hadn’t lived up to the potential they saw in me, they still encouraged me endlessly.

This project is dedicated to them.
