Dunja as Princess Mononoke

De Geuzen spent Tuesday evening in Amsterdam at the Eclectic Tech Carnival. We presented our Female Icons project and turbo fed the icons and impersonators archive.

The atmosphere was fantastically rigorous and relaxed (a unique and rare combination). People were presenting projects, learning Ubuntu and converting old hard drives to kitchen knife racks (talk about an unusual new lease on life). As a whole, the evening made me think a lot about how software and hardware are engendered, and whether that gender could be reassigned through use.
