Berkeley Cybersalon presents Mommies Online

More good geek stuff, this time specifically mom-centric. Sylvia Paull has asked me to be on the panel of one of her infamous Berkeley Cybersalons. Here's the information, which I lifted directly from the announcement she wrote.

If you live in the Bay Area, I hope to see you at this event! Go to the Berkeley Cybersalon site to see how you can RSVP. A few friendly (and hopefully, non-yawning) faces is always a good thing to see from the stage.


Berkeley Cybersalon
Mommies Online: Another Feminist Revolution?
5-7 p.m., Sunday, June 25

Hillside Club, 2286 Cedar St., Berkeley

Come meet some of the most outspoken women of our times: mommy bloggers. Grace Davis runs marathons and her family plus a personal blog, State of Grace, and raised more money than established relief funds through her Hurricane Katrina Direct Relief blog. Jenny Lauck’s known for her irreverently hilarious blog, Three Kid Circus, and as cofounder of group blog Mommybloggers.

Our other panelists include professional blogger Mary Tsao, who writes for BlogHer and Literary Mama as well as her personal blog, Mom Writes. Lisa Brewer Canter, who worked in music licensing before motherhood, blogs candidly about life with husband software entrepreneur Marc Canter and two young children at lisa.blogs.it. A surprise mommy blogger might appear from momsrising, a new organization dedicated to supporting the rights of mothers and families.

Admission is $10 for pizza and drinks, and the panel discussion, which starts around 5:45 and ends at 7. Feel free to bring family, including children – we have a room where they can play and we’ll enlist a supervisor on the spot.
