The last time I brought up the conference diversity issue, in my rather broken-record fashion, I mentioned that we have to address both the supply and demand side of the equation:
"Bottom line: more and more of these women are calling for us to keep talking about it but to also start taking action.
There's supply-side action...like listing yourself on the Speaker's Wiki and submitting your proposals.
And there's demand-side action...like not attending homogeneous events, or subscribing to homogeneous publications and blogging about why."
Well, here's a chance to take some supply-side action:
zdnet is looking for a few good tech and business bloggers, and yes, they'll pay.
Let's make sure they can't say "no women applied."
