"Fabulous? Nope. Of course I didn't check Yelp before going there, and if I had I'd not have gone as it seems others have had this lousy experience too ... so here's the email I wrote to the GM there…" - Cathy Brooks

"If I could give no stars, I would. Lousy lousy service. Don't bother making an appointment, they wont honor it. They are prone to injuring patrons by overeager gouging while trimming nails. The…" - Cathy Brooks

Re: Gender specific tech events: Are they counter productive? - http://thenextweb.com/insider...
"Oh gee, a snark comment posted by an anonymous man. Surprise, surprise. For the record, I'm not a coder and never claimed to be. That was a comment system fail as it wasn't intended as code ... just used <> instead of ( ) ... that would be a style error to which I will admit." - Cathy Brooks

Re: Gender specific tech events: Are they counter productive? - http://thenextweb.com/insider...
"The short answer is that yes, <enter here="" minority=""> specific events DO have value and a place ... This, however, is far from a binary "they're good" "they're bad" discussion. Few things in the world are, especially in the world where we live today. It would be nice to think that we live in such an egalitarian society that such specific type events weren't necessary; but to believe that is to also believe in unicorns and the tooth fairy. Generally I eschew an excess of <enter here="" minority=""> only gatherings - at least when taken as a staple of diet because in *that* context hey further exacerbate divisions and create ghettos rather than expanding communities. That said, the simple fact is that the "general" events (e.g. non <enter here="" minority=""> specific events) are, at least in the technology sector, almost always (and by almost always I mean well, about 90 percent of the time) populated by white males of a certain social/educational set with one of the few variables..." - Cathy Brooks

"Love to hear that there's a family/kid focus with The Downtown Project - especially since I'm moving there in February to be part of the adventures as well! My endeavor definitely has synergy with what you're doing and would love to meet up when I'm back." - Cathy Brooks

Re: Candid talk from entrepreneur Gina Bianchini how not to f*** up - http://venturebeat.com/2012...
"I have to say that I'm quite surprised to read this article - mostly because the quotes noted bear little resemblance to the actual facts of what was said. I conducted this interview and at no point did Gina say most of what was said in the manner it's related above. She neither said nor did she imply that she believed Ning raised too much money. In fact, she did not comment on the amount of money Ning raised at all. The statement that Gina believes "Ning raised too much money and that was fucked" is false. Gina's words about what she learned at Ning also were taken entirely out of context. What she *actually* said is that it was the most formative experience of her professional life and she learned from it immensely. The implication that her response was simply, "What didn't I learn at Ning?" is inaccurate. I've been honored to be part of FailCON for the last several years, conducting three of they keynote fireside chats. The amazing thing about this conference is that major industry..." - Cathy Brooks

"With disclosure that I just began consulting with this team I have to say the reason I stepped up to join them was seeing that they not only have solutions that are real but they are not afraid to ... um ... how to say it politely ... rattle cages. Expect a session that provokes, incites and may even piss some people off ... but that's okay. They'll probably be the people who are posers and don't really have a solution anyway. :)" - Cathy Brooks

"You raise a great point, Barbara that I hope we will have a chance to discuss at SXSW ... which is that in today's world of content creation, it's a different game for the independent folks with regards to financing. You need to think long-term and building community not just for audience of a specific project but to ensure that a future project can also get made!" - Cathy Brooks

"Having had a chance to witness the process of this film's development - from its inception through finally the release - have been fascinated not only to see the way in which the film actually got made but to see the unique community that grew around it. It seems to represent a real paradigm shift for independent film - the idea that leveraging community to get a film made is merely the first step. That in creating something bigger than the film itself the result not only is a powerful film but a huge potential for future projects." - Cathy Brooks

Re: Inside Dropbox’s Reverse-Engineered Company Culture - http://allthingsd.com/2012081...
"Have to say as as somewhat freshly minted photo-taking junkie (got myself a Nikon DX3100 several months ago), Dropbox has become invaluable to me. The auto upload from any device that I plug in - whether my iPhone, my Nikon or even my Sony Bloggie - has actually catalyzed my taking even more pictures and video. It would be great if their upload folder would sort by the device from which the content was taken but maybe they'll get to that :)" - Cathy Brooks

"Radical ethnography. Admittedly had no idea what this was ... then I started digging and realized that not only is it super important but that Kate is pretty much *the* go to know-it-all on the subject. Who better to have on stage at SXSW?" - Cathy Brooks

Re: Kinesio Tape at the Olympics: Science fiction? - http://vator.tv/news...
"Actually this article misses the mark. Yes, there is a type of tape that's used but it is the **application** of the tape that is the difference. And as someone who has actually had this method used for severe back injury as a method of temporary alleviation of discomfort/pain in order to allow me mobility while I healed, I can vouch personally for the veracity of this method." - Cathy Brooks

"Truly hoping to bring this performance piece/workshop to SXSW 2013! Honoring SXSW's roots as a music event, figured that a performance piece was a good way to set the stage and from there we'll do something unorthodox ... learn to sit still and see what happens when we do." - Cathy Brooks

Re: “Where are the Women At” Database - http://newschallenge.tumblr.com/post...
"HELL YES! This is an amazing idea with two women who definitely fall into the category of get things done types. Having produced an array of top tech industry conferences, produced tech TV and such over the years, I can personally state that this resource would be invaluable." - Cathy Brooks

Re: 5 Mobile Website Usability Rules You Cannot Afford To Break - http://usabilitygeek.com/5-mobil...
"Thanks for the simple guidelines. As someone who's working squarely in the realm of mobile web it's a daily chore to wade through the morass of content from businesses/brands that seem unable to grasp the fact that by failing to accommodate people who are accessing their content via mobile devices (a percentage that is growing exponentially by pretty much all accounts)." - Cathy Brooks

Re: The Bitch Is Back - Atlantic Mobile - http://m.theatlantic.com/magazin...
"Okay I'll say it ... while I appreciate the article and its point, will take umbrage at the poorly chosen headline. Using this word not only degrades the point, but plays directly into the hands of misogyny - I mean, seriously? If you haven't seen the film Miss Representation - do. It's precisely things like this that help dilute the overall message of meaningful articles - like this one. Oh wait ... perhaps I should place bets on the copyeditor for this being male ... Yeah pretty sure I'd win." - Cathy Brooks

Re: The Difference Between Barack Obama And Mitt Romney In One Graphic - http://front.moveon.org.proxy....
"So I will start by saying I am unabashedly against Mitt Romney or any of the other current candidates on the GOP side. Not altogether happy with Obama, mind you, but feel he is far less dangerous for this country than the alternatives. That said, I actually posted this image to my Facebook page several days ago. It is one of the most active conversation threads of anything I've ever posted, and I have to say that though I posted it realizing it is a photoshopped false image, my thoughts based on the conversation there - galvanized by Republicans I might add - has changed my mind. I am still voting AGAINST any GOP candidate and will encourage others to do same, but I cannot support the promotion and publication of images that are fabricated in this manner. Though I have no doubt that the meaning behind this image is accurate - Romney as an overentitled rich man who's grasp of reality is zero while Obama has a more populist understanding - this image and promoting is further the..." - Cathy Brooks
