By @kcwebgirl

For many years now I have made technology the focus of my career. I get a euphoric high from discovering new platforms for communicating with the masses and new ways to connect women to technology. The introduction of Web 2.0 was a godsend for women and girls in general. Why? Because the major focus is community communication and let’s face it, women and girls are more community oriented.
