What Margaret V. is saying about this Meetup Group

meets a need. I learned a lot, just listening to conversations around the room. I think I will go back a lot more often. I think the BS ratio of people talking up their own agendas was high, bu tit was also a way to get new vocabulary and ideas. the leader dude was very friendly. I was the only chick there. I wonder what the scoop on that is. I said, "I'm here because I just can't find the time" and the other people were like"i'm not that busy, but it seemed like a good idea." I thought, yeah, trying running a family and staying up with this stuff. I think I will take the womens meetups more seriously. I haven't noticed this problem in the more established industries (plenty of women in the room). I think you have to have a lot of time on your hands to attend these meetings--the cost of showing up is much harder on women. But everyone treated me with respect and kindness, so I don't think there was any discrimination at all.
