    By Angie Chang (Co-Founder & Editor-in-Chief, Women 2.0)

    This morning, Forbes announced their annual “30 Under 30″ lists, launching a cavalcade of public congratulations for the named, and also leaving many women in tech wondering “where are the women?” in Forbes lists?

    24-year old Danielle Fong holds top billing in the “30 Under 30″ for energy (and will be speaking at Women 2.0′s PITCH Conference). In the “30 Under 30″ for social & mobile, 29-year old Clara Shih (Co-Founder, Hearsay Social) announced her seat on Starbuck’s board last week. No doubt women are blazing trails in technology, business and innovation.
