Here at the Geek Girls Guide we’re constantly talking about ways in which people can empower and enrich their lives by embracing even the simplest technology. Our mission is to start a movement of people unafraid of tech — we want to make adventurers of even the most tentative of adopters.
Recently we facilitated a rather controversial conversation on this blog. People from all over contributed opinions, criticism, feedback and ideas to that discussion and it got us thinking — how can we continue the best of that dialogue? We decided to create a space on our website for ideas and conversation around them. It seems simple, but in this crazy digital age information moves at the speed of light and ideas happen and are lost in a blink. Some people have brilliant ideas and no interest in realizing them. Other folks are constantly looking for ideas to bring to fruition. And, in some cases, ideas are just seeds that, when planted, can grow into something much bigger than originally thought.
We decided (with the help of Geek Girls Men’s Auxiliary member and uber engineer Matt Gray) to create a little idea incubator here on Geek Girls Guide and open it up to you, our readers and community, to contribute to it. If you add an idea you’ll see that other people can vote on it, or discuss it in the comments. Share your ideas around making the interactive and technology industries places where men and women collaborate, communicate and create together. Or maybe you have a product idea, or ideas for non-profits that might help them further their mission. Maybe you have an idea for a new non-profit that fosters healthy attitudes about technology or funds technology education in urban areas. Whatever it is, your innovation, brain power and feedback is valuable to this process. We want to find the best ideas and the people in the industry willing to help make them happen. Together, we can create change. Join us. Join the conversation. Join the movement.
