Nat Torkington at NZCS

Hard to blog Nat, as one gets so caught up just listening to him.

He just called IT industry a sausage fest – as only 10% to 30% are women. Much laughter.

Says no point going down path of blame for this. Says gender is just the tip of the iceberg. And it is a huge opportunity.

Talks about Myer-Briggs tests as a form of astrology 🙂

Say ICT industry all belongs to one of their segments (missed which one).

Says the things which drive away women, also drive away shitloads of men. We need more people fullstop.

He said too often programmers (not all) are arseholes, as we like Darwinian competition. Newbies given too many stick for mistakes.
