By Jessica Stillman (Editor, Women 2.0)
Ready for a little rest, relaxation and turkey? So are we here at Women 2.0. We had a phenomenal time at our conference, but the team is pretty excited to kick back next week with family and friends and enjoy some good reading material. Here’s what we’ve been passing back and forth this week to inspire us for when we return to work after the holiday and get to work on planning on our next event.
- Vivek Wadhwa on why anyone anywhere can build the next Google. Do you agree with him that there are no barriers?
- A female-founded tech company goes public. No one notices. What’s up with that?
- Seems like Women 2.0 started a trend at our Vegas conference. Both the New York Times and Quartz are now writing about dating tech.
- And speaking of trends, more startup events are coming to Vegas.
- For those who are psyched about commercial space flight since hearing Jane Poynter’s talk, here’s a whole documentary on Silicon Valley’s efforts in the area.
- Does learning engineering make you forget how to be nice? A study by a sociologist/engineer say yes.
- Which cities are creating the most tech jobs? You’ll probably be surprised.
- If you’ve got big startup dreams but very little cash. there’s a new housing option available for you in SF.
- Across the pond, Germany is about to introduce a quota for women on boards (30%). Are laws like these a good idea?
