We talked about:
- how the personal blogs we started a decade ago affected each of our lives, both personal and professional.
- the major events of the last decade and how technology played a part, or how they might be different with today’s technology.
- predictions for the coming years
Dooce: the blogging juggernaut who was once known as the girl who lost her job because of her blog.
Meghan referenced a poem by Poetry Slam founder Marc Smith, which exemplifies the Geek Girls mission as we head into 2010:
pull the next one up
When you get to the top of the mountain
Pull the next one up.
Then there’ll be two of you
Roped together at the waist
Tired and proud, knowing the mountain,
Knowing the human force it took
To bring both of you there.
And when the second one has finished
Taking in the view,
Satisfied by the heat and perspiration under the wool,
Let her pull the next one up;
Man or woman, climber of mountains.
