TechEd News: Women speakers outnumber Brian’s at TechEd 2008 Developer

About three years ago, I noticed when perusing the speaker list for TechEd US (which is sorted alphabetically by first name) that there were a lot of Brians. Then I started counting and realized that there were more men named Brian speaking than there were women speaking.

I couldn’t help but notice on this year’s TechEd Developer speaker slate that there were only five Brians. Heck off the top of my head I can list more than 5 women.

  1. Me
  2. Kate Gregory
  3. Amanda Silver
  4. Sara Ford
  5. Lisa Feigenbaum
  6. Mary Chipman (SQL Server team)

There are more but I don’t know them off the top of my head. 🙂
