Channel 9 has a very interesting interview with Eileen Brown from Microsoft in the UK. eileen has had a non-traditional career to say the least. She used to navagate supertankers. From there she moved into information technology. Today she manages IT evangelists who support large enterprises in the UK. I like her definition of a technical evangelist - a techie who can talk. Communication is awefully important in IT. I also like her accent. :-)
Eileen talks about female geek dinner and has some interesting contrasts between general geek dinners and female geek dinners.
Eileen also has a blog at http://blogs.technet.com/eileen_brown/default.aspx
