Welcome to TechBlush – Technically You Are Beautiful

This is my first post ever!
Ruby Woo lipstick – check, NARs blush – check, MAC mascara – check, Marc Jacob eyeliner – double check.  It’s amazing how we know our way to beauty, but could not troubleshoot an issue with our computer without taking it the GeekSquad or the Apple store for the life of us. I  decided to create this site to pique more women’s interest in technology by leveraging health and beauty.   My hope is that while you’re reading about health and beauty tips, you’ll absorb some of the techiness from articles posted about the latest and greatest information about technology. Below are couple quick facts I grabbed from TechRepublic.com ENJOY!
(http://www.techrepublic.com/article/the-state-of-women-in-technology-15-data-points-you-should-know/)
Women made up 26% of the computing workforce in 2013
57% of bachelor’s degrees earned by women, 12% of computer science degrees
These statistics are alarming! We as leaders of families and futures have to make sure that we stay abreast with technology.
“I think it’s very important to get more women into computing. My slogan is: Computing is too important to be left to men.”
— Karen Spärck Jones, Professor of Computers and Information at Cambridge Computer Laboratory. Spärck Jones was a vocal advocate for women in computing and technology; she introduced the concept of inverse document frequency (IDF) used by most search engines today.
