An update on the Ada Initiative
Posted Dec 21, 2011 11:31 UTC (Wed) by njwhite (subscriber, #51848)
I was referring to the way that the article mentions a controversial issue, then just links to one or two articles saying essentially "some people agree, others do not," generally emphasising the side who were most negative.
Which wasn't very interesting to me, in general. That said, it wasn't a bad overview of some of the issues of the last year. I suppose I wanted a bit more than just a "this happened, some liked it, others did not" sort of a thing.
I was happy to see you mention the GNOME Outreach Program for Women, by the way; they do indeed appear to be doing great things. I too hope (and expect) that the Ada Initiative work closely with them, in particular setting up similar mentoring and internship type programmes.
