A group of aussie TTBs have decided they're sick of IT being seen as a boys club, so they've published a 'Screen Goddesses' calendar to show that babes can be geeks too. (of course, GC regulars already knew that)

The (only mildly NSFW) site is here

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

Hm. Seriously they all look decent from a distance (which most of those photos have been taken at). I wouldn't consider them "calender" worthy. [tired] [ohwell]

edit: didn't see sharon. she looks hot but cameras can do alot. [tired]

It's inner beauty that counts.

The point is that they are /real/ women from the IT industry not that they are "Hawt" (and they looked calendar worthy enough to me...) Rather like the (in)famous WI "Calendar Girls" nude shots wasn't really about nudity but just about shaking things up!

Loved the film theme idea and so well done too - totally excellent work and for a damned good cause too. My girls are far too young for me to be worrying about that sort of thing yet but if they show interest in it later I would be all for it... At least we might have something to talk about in my dotage!

I don't see why you are all being so sniffy. I think they all look fantastic. I certainly wouldn't kick any of them out of bed anyway!

Besides...they're geek girls!!! How many people complain about trying to find them? Here they are?

Want a runway model? Be satisfied to listen to her talk about her wardrobe & makeup...and her eyes to glaze over when you talk about compiling your kernel. [Smile] She probably won't want to discuss computational complexity either...
