Question: will Robert Scoble get a debate going about gender balance in the lineup of speakers at conferences with his observation en passant in his post The Next Web is the Human Web?

Oh, one other thing. Where are the freaking women? They are doing the most interesting blogging. One of the Nestle members said “no one in mycountry is doing blogging.” I said “bull.” And told them about Global Voices Online where there are bloggers from nearly every country around the world.


One conference where there will be plenty of women speakers is Blogher in San Jose, CA, July 28-29. From a quick look at the ‘who’s coming’ section I can see there will be at least five of my colleagues there, with a healthy representation of the LinkedIn Bloggers group.
