Looking for a little plane reading for your trip to Vegas? With only a week or so to go until our conference, the Women 2.0 team broke up a boatload of exciting event preparations with conversations about space travel, slam poetry and other conference organizers’ possible lack of basic internet search skills. Check out the links below to join in the discussion.
- How Anne Wojcicki’s 23andMe is hoping to revolutionize the healthcare industry.
- At the conference, we’re discussing the future of retail. PSFK shares its vision.
- India is sending a mission to Mars…. for less than it cost to shoot the movie Gravity (and less, even, than some fancy NYC apartments). What does that say about how we use our resources?
- The real reason tech conferences have so few female speakers: Poor internet search skills. (Very funny)
- Does Silicon Valley have an arrogance problem? Some say yes, but VC Brad Feld, for one, heartily disagrees. What say you?
- How to create a hackathon that’s less daunting to women.
- Speaking in public? Check out these secrets from the most popular TED talks.
- A post-Halloween dose of feminist awesomeness to help you recover from all those ‘slutty whatever’ costumes.
- And speaking of random awesomeness, a robot is set to ring the NASDAQ closing bell.
