Following our coverage of ROFLcon last week, blogger Paddy Johnson posted today about the absence of female speakers in the internet culture conference's program. She observed this shortage a few weeks back, and co-ordinated with artist Steve Lambert to stage a performance/lecture during ROFLcon on Saturday to call attention to this fact, in which Lambert presented a fictitious Firefox application which would remove the presence of women from the internet. In order to avoid this sort of unfortunate scenario in the future, Paddy called on her readers in her post to submit suggestions to Jen Bekman's ongoing list "Women Speakers for Your Conference." (And, thoughtfully, she added three Rhizome staff members to that list.)
