Digital Pinay 2005 on plug-misc

But seriously, the organizers should have thought more about the matter. Women are not mere trophies to flaunt at events. Gee, if that were the case, they could have just gotten some actresses who could be spokespersons for them, I think. I mean, that's going to be advertising but with the duties of the "reigning" Digital Pinay - Hmmm, that seems to be the case. And that is sad, sad, sad.

I hope that the people from PCS would do damage control ASAP. Or else...

When I read the headline of the article "Search for top Filipino female IT pros slated" I thought it was good as it would duly recognize Filipina contributors to the growth of Philippine IT. But now that I know the details I really find it insulting to women. Asking for vital statistics and requiring the winner to grace PCS occasions are simply demeaning.
