Women in technology

There is a group called Women In Technology -- to be honest, I'm not sure if they are a Washington group, or they just have an active Washington organization.

Anyway, I saw this in the SJMN:

Three Bay Area professionals -- an engineer, an executive and a professor -- were honored Tuesday evening as ``Women of Vision'' by the Anita Borg Institute for Women and Technology.

The honorees of the inaugural awards are: Radia Perlman, senior engineer at Sun Microsystems; Janie Tsao, senior vice president of worldwide sales, marketing and business development at Cisco Systems; and Pamela Samuelson, professor of law and information management at the University of California-Berkeley.


We did a story earlier this year looking at women in the federal IT community -- and they are a very important part, of course. Just look at the person who is essentially the federal government's CIO, Karen Evans. But it has been a profession that has been largely dominated by men. So it was nice to see these three women recognized.

Congrats to them!
