In the conversation about the 53 guys and 1 woman (climbing now to 3 I hear tell) presenting at Office 2.0, I would like to present the winners of my Biggest Smallest Prick Award. Let's name names so that they may bask in the glow of their own lameness:
When my five-year-old daughter grows up and becomes an Oracle sysadmin (fingers crossed!), it’ll be because I started teaching her how to write stored procedures in the womb, not because some conference organizer was pressured into using his conference to “promote diversity”.

… gee .. .how do I invite you now, Robert? Will you dress up as woman for us? Joke apart, sending email in a minute… and hope to see you there. -- Comment by Zoli Erdos — September 1, 2006 @ 8:51 pm

Sadly to say Robert, when you engage the castration crowd, you ain’t never gonna win an argument. Not even come close. -- Comment by Dennis Howlett — September 2, 2006 @ 2:17 pm
WOW those are really dumb things to say!
And yet, I find myself inspired. If I were the least bit gifted in graphics, which I am not, the women speaking at O2.0 would be wearing a cafe press shirt, featuring two...err...nuggets with a C in each one, and the slogan: Brought to you by... and it DOESN'T stand for Creative Commons.
But this will have to suffice.
