I'm watching the formation of a local hackspace at the moment; it's something I feel could be useful, but it seems to be being undermined by some arrant stupidity by one of the louder founding wannabes. I've already been told I don't know what I'm talking about in the definition of hacking (he clearly prefers the tabloid def and quotes wikipedia on it) and much the same in discussing embedded programming languages (complete with demands for citations). Well, perhaps I'll not bother - and go back to making things out of metals, microcontrollers and the like while earning my salary as an embedded software engineer... Their loss, given the skills they reckon they'd like to learn.
If that's what someone who is fairly thick-skinned concludes, then I wouldn't be surprised to see the same pattern repeated for others, regardless of gender.
I'll be in my shed.
