Tina Brown talking about why engaging women - and telling women’s stories! - is good business. (AKA there is a lot of money to be made by taking women seriously.) OH NO YOU DON’T ERIK SCHATZBETH WHO JUST ASKED HER WHETHER SHE SHOULD BE A NON-PROFIT BECAUSE IT’S SO IMPORTANT. HE SAID HE WAS “JUST RAISING THE QUESTION.” TINA: “WE’RE NOT A PITY PARTY.” ARGH WORLD WOMEN ARE NOT HERE TO DO YOUR CHARITY WORK. #changetheratio (at )
Anna Curran, founder of Cookbook Create, has created a cookbook! It’s for SXSW featuring recipes from a few denizens and past speakers, including us (Cousin’s Ann’s crescent cookies - the genius is in the browning). A lot of legit good, useful recipes in there from a diverse range.
If you don’t need any dumb recipes from any dumb tech scenester, fair enough - you can make your own. Cookbook Create is a custom cookbook publishing platform so you really have no excuse for forgetting how to make Aunt Ethel’s cranberry sauce.
(BTW as a Canadian Jewess I think I chose the fictitious example furthest away from my own life experience.)
Anyhow! Cookbook Create #SXSW14!

Every year at SXSW, we host a great event for women in tech and new media to celebrate and highlight their accomplishments, introduce them to each other and present a visible, physical reminder that the industry is not comprised solely of white dudes in hoodies.
Last year we were delighted to be sponsored in part by Posse, a great app for seeing what your friends recommend in a town (Microsoft was our other sponsor). Posse founder Rebekah Cambpell wrote a terrific article for the NYT about how her team made a huge splash at SXSW without a huge marketing budget - including sponsoring our event! She wrote that she was delighted to be able to give a speech. That’s her above giving it.
If you’re coming here from that article, welcome! Last year’s party was the official SXSW launch of TheLi.st, a network and media platform for women and sister-org to CTR. We have an expanding membership network, a newsletter, and most recently, an anthology out on Amazon Kindle called “The 10 Habits of Highly Successful Women.”
If you’re interested in learning more, please:
Delighted to support incredible women like Rebekah and more!

Oh and also here’s the cover for “The 10 Habits of Highly Successful Women" which you is $1.99 and super-easy to download to your Kindle right now!
