Thanks for sharing. Followed it for a couple of hours yesterday. Great discussion and really sheds a light on the industry worldwide.

You are welcome. I really think this needs more attention from everyone. Did you check the other side of the coin? Women talking about reasons to be in the games industry? #1ReasonToBe

A lot of really great personal blog posts ensued and now, this talk at NYU Game Center.

"StartSelection:0000000199 EndSelection:0000000739Professor Colleen Macklin, along with Naomi Clark (Brooklyn Game Ensemble),
Katherine Isbister (NYU Poly), Frank Lantz (NYU/Zynga), Karen Sideman
(Games for Change), Sarah Schoemann (NYU Poly student- Hey Girl Gamer),
will be speaking at NYU about the
recent #1reasonwhy, #1reasontobe, #1reasonmentor twiiter streams and how
the game industry can be more inclusive. On Dec 11 at 7pm @ 721 Broadway,
9th Floor Lobby.

Now that female gamers are a hype, especially in the casual games industry, would it not attract more female game designers?
