Lisa Stone's recent post on the Blogher Blog, "True or False: Do "women warm the podcast bench?" responds to Steve Friess' report for Wired News on the lack of a presence of women at the Portable Media Expo and Podcasting Conference.
What worries me is that just because women didn't show up on that radar at podcasting's inaugural conference doesn't mean we aren't podcasting. It means the guys at that conference don't know us. And Friess cannot report what he doesn't hear or doesn't know.
It isn't only podcasting, it happened at hackers conference, according to the annecdote that Annalee Newitz mentioned in her talk "Revenge of the Female Nerds: Myth Busting."
