Thursday 19 August 2010 marked the launch of the highly secretive yet painfully brilliant Girl Guides website.
Girl Guides is described as a “gathering of minds investigating technology from a feminine perspective” through a collective of women from all around South Africa.
The premise is simple. A group of ladies review the latest and greatest technology on offer in South Africa. In other words:
As you can see, this is made of pure ‘win’.
In all seriousness, I think that Girl Guides is a great idea. As much as I prefer to deter from using stereotypes, the fact remains that a lot of woman, both young and old, just do not ‘get’ technology and gadgets.
A clear niche exists then, to help unleash the hidden legions of untapped hot geekettes; and this is precisely where Girl Guides comes in.
So if you have a sister, partner or girlfriend who may be a closet geekette, give them a helping hand and point them towards Girl Guides.
Until the next time “Milieunairs”!
