Adriana Gascoigne, founder of Girls In Tech quick interview at LAUNCH

I caught up with Adriana Gascoigne, the founder of Girls in Tech, at the LAUNCH conference in San Francisco.

Adriana has a great story about her reasons behind starting Girls in Tech.  Several years ago she was the only female employee in a startup with 50 employees and decided "that was a problem."

She created Girls in Tech in 2007, a "social network enterprise focused on the engagement, education and empowerment of like-minded, professional, intelligent and influential women in technology."  The organization now has 57 chapters worldwide (including NYC, China, and Paris) and has had heavyweight speakers like Twitter CEO Evan Williams at Kicklabs last Sept, and an upcoming session with Dennis Crowley of Foursquare in April.  I asked her why she named it "Girls" vs. "Women" in Tech and she said it was because "it's more fun" and lighthearted.  The good news for men:  Yes, you are allowed to attend.

Here's the quick 5 minute interview with Adriana:

Spider

On Sara Alina

Today when I was helping my mom move into her new apartment, she told me repeatedly that she was going to leave and that I was in charge of moving the things from her car safely into the apartment. As I was walking up the stairs i felt something on my shoulder. I looked over and there is was… A GIANT SPIDER! I dropped all my moms vases, and was struggling to get it off my shoulder.

Everything was destroyed.. And it turns out the spider was nothing but a leaf! Great job!

-Love Sara Alina
