In support of Kathy Sierra and the Scobles

A brief post to express support for blogger Kathy Sierra and also Robert and Maryam Scoble.

I think Robert Scoble sums it up very well when he says

It’s this culture of attacking women that has especially got to stop. I really don’t care if you attack me. I take those attacks in stride. But, whenever I post a video of a female technologist there invariably are snide remarks about body parts and other things that simply wouldn’t happen if the interviewee were a man.

It makes me realize just how ascerbic this industry and culture are toward women. This just makes me ill.

I have never met Kathy Sierra but I believe that the physical and sexual threats against her are deplorable. Robert and Maryam Scoble are people who I regard as personal friends. They are wonderful people and it’s sad to see them threatened.
