72 hours after receiving a tweet from BBC Points of View, I had finished filming my reaction to be shown the following Sunday.
Is that just my normal computer desk behind me?
Nope, I dressed it specifically for filming.
Read on to find out what I did.
But first, how I ended up on TV.
Last week I blogged my rant of the first episode of BBC3's "Girls Can Code".
As a result, I was invited to film a short review for BBC1 Points of View. My review was under two minutes with clips. I couldn't cover all the points I wanted. Below are all the notes I prepared for filming.
I was super excited to see a short series called Girls Can Code in the TV schedule. I wanted to see how the low percentage of women in tech would be addressed.
Within a few minutes of watching the programme, I started to get annoyed. My husband only managed 10 minutes of it before he had to leave the room.
I gave this talk at the InspireWIT Women in Technology conference for students at Nottingham University on 15 Nov 2014.
The theme: women inspiring women
The brief: talk personally and frankly about yourself, about your education and experiences of being in the technology industry.
I ran my first Kickstarter campaign 30 Apr-21 May in 2014 to raise funds to print a book of my erotica.
This was the first time I've marketed anything. I decided to document my experience. My campaign was successfully funded.
Naomi Wolf, speaking on the "Do We Need Feminism" panel with Karen Straughan (Girl Writes What) and Antigone Darling at the Liberty Forum annual conference in February 2014.
It's so important for citizens to act as journalists in a time when the Police State is cracking down on us.
I think I might have invented a new genre of erotica. I ran a successful crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter to print my book, fingers & tongues.
I thought long and hard about how to make the design work for the book's intent. Using my experience as a UX consultant, I made user-centred decisions on the typography, editing, book design and the use of imagery.
