“Fake Geek Girls”

July 25, 2014

I’m in the process of getting the blog back alive, but I couldn’t wait to share this with everyone, so please be patient when it comes to my other content getting back online soon.

I came across this video this morning and it’s alarmingly amazing! They are talking about ‘Fake Geek Girls’, but as our major ‘Security Summer Camp’ is approaching, it’s so appropriate that you can actually see the overlap to how some perceive females that attend InfoSec/Hacker conferences as well.

Some notable moments:

2:12 – Their take on Booth Babes (This one is really good, especially since it looks at the perspective of the actual ‘booth babes’ while poking fun)

5:40 – Credibility – Females vs Males <– THIS… SO THIS…

6:50 NICOLE SCHWARTZ!!! (HELL YEAH! They used a picture of @amazonv )

7:46 – SHOWER! (We all know this should be advised for all the guys and some of the stinky girls)
