    an Ubuntu woman

    I have read some of your posts and it is true that there are not many women in the computer field. I discovered Ubuntu when a friend of my husband's mentioned Ubuntu. He works on computers as a hobby. I have an associates degree in computers and networking so I am a 55 year old female computer geek, which is not very common here in the US. My name is Zoe Gambrell and I am an Ubuntu woman. Hope I can get to know some other women who are computer techs like me. I don't know of any others around where I live here in Tennessee, USA.

    Welcome Zoe_Gambrell, hope you hang around for awhile. I suppose I am a computer geek of sorts although I have no formal education as such, strictly self-taught.

    Welcome, Zoe. I would suggest you to join our team on LP [1] and sign up onto the mailing-list [2] in order for you to introduce yourself to the rest of us. We are slightly more active in the mailing-list and the IRC channels. I also suggest you to pop into the IRC channels: #ubuntu-women and #ubuntu-women-project on chat.freenode.net and say "hello" there. Please keep in mind that the second channel is LOGGED and the first is not.
