I first met Alison Gianotto (Snipeyhead on Twitter) at a Macworld Expo many years ago. She was sitting in Dave’s, a divey (but wonderful) little bar near the Moscone Center. I saw this gorgeous redhead sitting there surrounded by geeks and thought, “Why is *she* here?”
Someone introduced us and I quickly realized, she was no one’s eye candy. Not only was she more than geeky enough to be in attendance, she was fiercely intelligent, funny and wasn’t taking shit from anyone, myself included. I liked her a lot.
We never got to really hang out much at Expo (I wasn’t in her Geek League) but always enjoyed the brief times I got to talk with her.
Over the weekend, she wrote on Twitter, “This was tough for me to write – please read…” What followed was a kick in the balls.
Read it. Tweet it. Facebook it. Tell your friends. And then go hug every woman you love.
