Well done folks. Over 2000 pledges this year, and hopefully most of those turned into posts.
One post that caught my eye was at the official WordPress blog. The folks at Automattic wanted to celebrate the works of the girl geeks on the WordPress team. Given that I use WordPress just about every day, I too am very grateful to these ladies.
On the other hand, the BBC managed to get completely the wrong end of the stick, somehow coming away with the idea that people were voting for their favorite woman geek. If that was the idea, we’d see much less variety, which would defeat the whole object of ALD. Ah well, all publicity is good publicity, I guess. Sad that the media has to turn everything into some sort of American Idol style popularity contest, though.
And finally, those of you who missed the live webcast of the London event can see the whole thing here, including presentations by Maggie Philbin, Suw Charman-Anderson and Sue Black.
(I am, by the way, very impressed with the quality. Either UStream has upped their act significantly since last year or the ALD event had a really good connection.)
