Define *involved*? There certainly have been plenty
of chicky-poos working in graphic design and all (real
dudes didn't use Macs, did they? LOL LOL LOL).
Generally they aren't all that inclined to wax
nostalgic over an old puter though.

Ahahaha. I like that. I like it loads. LOL LOL LOL
Remember Kiki Stockhammer? Worked for Newtek first I

a woman named Kiki?
We all should think what could be done to get more
chickys involved in this hobby though...
