Erm, i think i covered most points in my earlier mail but ....
For that matter, it will become what it is projected to be, so if one
keeps harping on the non-existent negative , people will learn to see
only the negatives. Rather I prefer to focus on the positive and hype
that instead. UW was from the start meant to be technical. Ofcourse we
try to be inclusive and all that, but we were never about creating a
'women user' space.

umm.. now i am confused, so what in your opinion does  'About U-W'
stand for and does that exclude women who wish to be techy here. If
yes, why ?
IIRC, the mag (fullcircle) is main , ... did Ronnie mention about
publishing a seperate magazine for women? What I dont understand is
the reluctance and brick wall that comes up each time UW tries to go
the technical route. That is disturbing and counter productive.
