News flash - geeky girls eat dinner

Mature readers may remember Robert X Cringely, who wrote Accidental Empires, one of the first good looks at the Silicon Valley heroes of the 70s and 80s. The subtitle of the tome, which is still a Good Read, was “How the boys of Silicon Valley make their millions, battle foreign competition, and still can’t get a date”.
Downtime suspects suitable date material may be easier to find these days. Founded in frustration in 2005 by Sarah Blow, the sisterhood of girl geeks known as Geek Girl Dinners, has gone global, well, at least as far as Skopje, Macedonia. It is even attracting sponsorship from Google.
Judging from some of the venues, girl geeks would be unhappy with the traditional diet of two day old pizza crusts, stale crisps and flat cola. You have been warned.
