Aside from the unveiling of Google’s new 7-inch Asus-made Nexus tablet and Project Glass‘s skydiving demo at Google I/O yesterday – don’t miss Women 2.0’s own Director of All Things Offline Sepideh Nasiri as she speaks on the Google I/O session “Designing for the Other Half: Sexy Isn’t Always Pink”.
Google I/O session panelists include Jess Lee (Co-Founder & CEO, Polyvore), Leah Busque (Founder & CEO, TaskRabbit), Margaret Wallace (Founder & CEO, Playmatics) and Tracy Chou (Backend Software Engineer, Pinterest).
