Re: Awesome Women, Awesome Future
That's great to hear! It's so cool to see more and more folks encouraging women and other tech-minorities to enjoy science and tech from such an early age. I suspect that will be the key to dealing with the shortage of security people. It will be great to see what the future of this industry brings!

Awesome Women, Awesome Future
Lysa, I definitely have a great deal of respect for your work and what you do.  As I raise my daughters, I ignore completely any baggage I might have gathered growing up and encourage them to do everything, from playing with Barbies to hacking on GNU/Linux.  If it makes them happy (within reason of safety and the law, of course), I help them get there.  It's not just about equality, but as any hacker know, it's about new vision and different ways of thinking.  InfoSec gets more and more interesting every year the more diversity appears, from gender to age to race – though, hackers have always been pretty divers, but I think the community as it sits now has never been more vibrant.  Awesome women in the industry – any industry for that matter – equals and awesome future.
