These Girlz Will Be Working For You, Soon

March 2, 2007

When I present to groups about the idea of extreme learning, I sometimes get told that it’s only 15-year-old boys who are hooked on games. Well, I just saw a wonderful video on GeekTV that shows just how yesterday that idea is.

The Girlz Of Destruction is a team of ten “grown-up” girls from around the world who compete in first-person-shooter video games. They’ve now found a physical home in Sweden, where they practice on their own LAN and are building a physical “community” as well. (Sweden has very big pipes, and this is a benefit.)

Because my wife is a network geek, and a grandmother, I knew all of this already. Geek girlz rock.
