On booth babes and sex in technology

Jon_prez reacts to my comments on Microsoft booth babes and open source posters:

Be fair to Microsoft… those booth babes are still in much better taste than Red Hat’s lame ‘fsck me’ – Carmen Electra ad.

Right. Hence the “SHEESH. Shame on all of you.” comment in 2005.09.17#5.

In fact, open source companies have done a _lot_ worse. Was that Red
Hat with a poster of an almost-naked women with… err… just a
strategically placed penguin or something like that?

<sigh>

And they wonder why girls don’t really like tech.

_Definitely_ one of the things that gets my goat.
