Teh Future

The other day I noticed that Shameless’ “Geek Chic” category is sadly underrepresented. Tech is important to me. I <3 tech. Poor little tech, not getting the love.

Sometimes the line is blurry between the personal interests of one young feminist (<-me), and what might be interesting to young feminists everywhere.

But when you get a great lead on some new (or overlooked) tech hawtness, one of the first things you do is share it with all your geeky buddies. So that’s what I’m going to start doing here, extended circle of geeky buddies: expect some more regular excited blathering from me about videogames, operating systems, gizmos, hacks, all the things a growing tech-savvy girl needs.

Playing catch-up, here are few bits and pieces I owe you, Shameless ladies:

Google Talk Chatback badge

And the one I’m most excited about today, the newest coolest release from Google: the Google Talk Chatback badge. Put chat functionality on your website. So easy, so awesome.

Just like tech. smile
