Any time someone starts a thread on this list, it starts raining puppies. Has anyone else noticed this strange weather phenomenon? Or am I making this up?

Thanks, Steven. I have friends in Minneapolis, and am passing this on.

FYI - this national women in computing conference is happening in  Minneapolis right now:


We are introducing GroupServer (what E-Democracy uses for open source, inclusive neighbor connecting online) at their hacking day:

I am not sure how many NYC-area women my team will run into, but if we do we will mention betaNYC and this exchange. Is there a key point of contact we should share?

Noel, Marianne, et al., 

I shared this thread with Kate Brodock, president of Girls in Tech.  She says they'd be happy to partner with folks here in New York.  She probably also has a good list of who might be active or interested in such a project here in NYC.  Her contact info is below.  I'd recommend reaching out to her directly to continue the conversation.

Interesting, Girls in Tech would be happy to partner with them on this. We have chapters all around the country (and world).

The more the merrier and a
civic-focused women's space would be awesome. If we find there are similar groups that exist I'm available to help see if we can partner or combine resources.

We can always use another, but this is actually what Ladies Who Code does. Totally informal hack night and there are some trans members as well, but only once a month. I would say do it :)

one of my goals is to build a diverse civic hacking community - nationally and here in NYC. as part of that, WE get to experiment with ideas few cities have resources to do so. 

with that, i'd really like to see a safe place where women and individuals who identify as women can hack on their own civic projects, network, and empower themselves under the "Code for America Brigade" banner. 

maybe i am blind to the resources/spaces/etc.. that are currently available, but i was wondering if there is such a desire. if there is and current resources are inadequate, i would like to help change that.

thoughts?
