Geeky Highlights from BlogHer 13


The Girls Code panel that I was on went well. Kimberly Bryant from @blackgirlscode had to miss BlogHer because of a family emergency, but the other three of us forged ahead and we had a good discussion.


Automattic was in the Expo hall and it was fun to talk WordPress with them. Here I am with Automattic Happiness Engineer Karen Alma.


Sheryl Sandberg was a keynoter. She was inspiring! She arranged for Lean In circles to take place after the keynote with her there participating.


I got to meet Majora Carter and have a brief conversation with her. She’s someone who has done so much good in the world, someone I really admire.


Adria Richards brought Glass. She let lots of people try it on, play around with taking video or photos, learn how to scroll through the menus, and just generally see why Glass is cool.


She told me she brought her Glass to Chicago just for me to get to see it, and she did let me try it out several times. Thank you, Adria!

Virginia and Glass. Cool!

I did two sessions in the Geek Bar, which I wrote about yesterday in The Whys and Hows of Two Step Verification.

Although I shouldn’t rightfully count them as geeky, Queen Latifah and Gale Ann Hurd (from The Walking Dead) were awesome.

  1. Glass looks good on you.

    Do you like it? Do you want it? Do you need it?

    (Elisa has glass, as well, but since she’s an apple girl, she’s more limited to what she can do with it than she likes….)

    1. I don’t live in the Android world either, but I can sure see how it could be useful. I probably won’t be able to buy one, but would love to have one.

    1. Adria had me using it in about 10 seconds flat, it was that easy. I added refinements as time went by, but I was impressed by the ease of use.
