In the comments of my post of Annalee Newitz's talk on the Revenge of the Female Nerds, my friend Anina pointed me her interview on nerdtv.
I met and live blogged Anina at Blogher. This female nerd doesn't wear glasses and is not ugly. Anina represents the new European tradition in mobile Internet development. And you'd never guess her day job.
I loved the interview - especially the "Lies to Tell the Phone Company" bit. It made me wonder why there weren't more female nerds on the nerdtv guest list?

Guest list is subject to change
It does say "guest list subject to change." Maybe we need to email Robert x.Cringley and suggest some other female nerds to be interviewed? Certainly there are lots of to choose from in the Blogher Speaker Wiki.
