etc - Eclectic Tech Carnival
The Eclectic Tech Carnival started off as a Genderchangers-On-The-Road event but it grew into a project of its own. The /ETC, as it is also known, is an international event that takes place when and where there is an interest in having it. The one local, the other global but they both consist of a combination of tech skill sharing and networking among women. Perhaps one of the reasons for the evolution is that the group of women that initiated the project were nearly all not originally from Amsterdam and with an internationally background. Another reason could be that there are not so many of us, but we find each other on the net. A network would not be one when contained in a shell. In addition, most of the active /etc women has focused on Systerserver during the last two years.
