Brisbane Girl Geek Guitar Hero

Ahoy! The fifth Brisbane Girl Geek Dinner is upon us!

definitely does compute!

Hosted at the fabulous Microsoft Office there will be a games and consoles to ravage while you simultaneously catch up with the coolest females in IT around! I mean, you don't expect us to lounge around with martinis all the time, now do you?

Tracy Whitelaw, Chief Knowledge Engineer at artificial intelligence company MyCyberTwin will speak about women in games and the gaming industry. Her profile is on the event page I linked to above if you'd like a snapshot. I'm definitely keen to hear about the world of online worlds, character development and pop culture.

So if "you are a geek and a girl or know of one who is willing to escort you then you are welcome and encouraged to come along." Don't be too afraid to join in if you're a gentleman, just tell me or the organisers that you'd like to come along. I'm expecting a comment or two on this post joking we'll require someone to set up the Xbox 360 anyway!

Last thing, as I type, the event website states that food is BYO, however the latest news is that food will be provided. Make sure you inform the organisers if you have any particular dietry requirements for smiles all 'round.

WoW Launch, Jobseeking and More

Just recently I attended the Brisbane CBD launch of the new World of Warcraft extension, Wrath of the Lich King. It was a pretty good event for the first gaming launch I'd experienced, and I've blogged about it for Tech Wired AU which I am collaborating on. Great stuff! In the more academic of my events life at the moment, I am putting together the final paperwork for the COTAH Events Conference Series and graduating in December. Hurrah!

Looking for full-time work for 2009 is proving standard as jobseeking goes, but I'd still love to hear of any openings you may know of. Plenty of great opportunities in Brisbane, I'm afraid I'll actually end up taking on more than I can chew next year! Oh, but that's always a thrilling prospect in itself, no
