Well I went to a few meet ups in the San Diego area, and the lack of women was rather striking. I wasn't sure what to think of it, "is it my area?, is this common?" you know the whole list of things your brain comes up with when you're in an uncomfortable situation... "do I look funny?"
Anyway I've been reading through the forums a bit more, and I found that I was quite mistaken
but a noobs gotta post what a noobs gotta post.
Again thanks for not being strangers.
