In response to Cameron Moll’s post about the 20 designers influencing him most, I left this comment:
I noticed the same thing Molly did. “Where are the women?” but I have been thinking about that a bit lately as I dig deeper into CSS. The people influencing me to do so, who talk about CSS and teach it are mostly men. The women who influence me are mostly doing other things, or at least talking about other things. For example, Heather Champ (visual design) or Christina Wodtke (information design). The biggest muse I have these days for good design and interface usability is Mena Trott and most of her public talking is devoted to business relationship design, to being a CEO.
