"I've been using computer mediated communications for 6
years and for the first few years I was appalled at the Internet "boys
club." I experienced all the negatives about the Net: the cowardly
bullying and flaming that anonymity permits; overt sexism & harassment; plus
some pretty unpleasant cyberstalking and taunts online.
I created geekgirl as a vehicle to express my ideas, about
feminism/cyberfeminism. The publication has always incorporated a disparity of
feminist views and opinions, plus a range of topics which are my personal
faves, from cryptography to alien abduction and techno music. geekgirl is
an eclectic goop melange . . .
From the moment I viewed the WWW it turned me on! Better than Net
sex or a piece of cheesecake, the WWW said this is what you've been waiting for--grab it! plug in! and produce some in your face attitude your detractors will respect. That's pretty much what
happened and although I still have friends who prefer IRC or Usenet, I
consider the WWW my political home--it's just so kewl. It's everything a
polymediaist dreamed of.;)"
