A panel discussion hosted by Gia Milinovich talking with writer/producer Tracy King, filmmaker Campbell, presenter Maggie Philbin, all of whom are female, geeks and doing things “they shouldn’t be doing”. Should “girls” be gamers? Do older women understand technology? A black LGBT geek? Really?

Gia Milinovich, according to Wikipedia, “is an American film blogger and producer” (nope), “she presented TV programmes… dating back to 1995 (1992 actually), but now works largely behind the scenes” (nope). So there you go.
