Poor little Nomi. So eager to be a big brain and so poorly equipped.
She's writing about tar sands and that's probably a good job for her.
She also hopes her appearance giving this will help her stock rise -- her appearance at a TED conference.
In June of this year, Joe Coscarelli wrote the following for the Village Voice:
"It's a boys club." You've heard it about almost every industry imaginable; it's always true. The tech world, though, is a special sort of sausage club. The global TED (Technology Entertainment and Design) conferences, held annually since 1990, aim to give a stage to ambitious social entrepreneurs with potentially world-changing ideas, all with a technological bent. Unfortunately, but not unpredictably, it skews male. Take, for instance, their tag page for "women"; it's underwhelming. But they have a solution! It's a conference just for women and it's this December in Washington, D.C. That's what women want, right? Something for themselves? It's called TEDWomen.
Naomi really expects credit for taking part in that confrence?
