    Ok, synopsis is a presentation, followed by a QA session, given by two of the 4 female Debian developers. I fast forwarded most of it (tut tut) but it seemed to be about how to improve the amount of female involvement in Debian and Linux.

    OK. I'll probably watch later on. I had totally forgotten about this! I'll get this before Plan 9 From Outer Space (which is now in the public domain and available from archive.org).

    "One idea being considered is the creation of women-focused groups in some open-source communities, said Danese Cooper, a board member of the Open Source Institute and an open-source advocate at Intel. At least one such group, called Debian Women, has been created within the Debian community; So far, four women have joined the project because of that group. Creation of a similar group is being discussed within the Apache open-source community, she said."
