Eclecic Tech Carnival for Women

The Eclectic Tech Carnival is a gathering of women interested in open source technology. It's been held at least once a year since 2002, each time in a place where there is an interested group of women willing to host it. Its roots are in the Genderchangers hardware and FLOSS courses.

Women from all over the world organise the /etc through mailing lists, IRC and IRL meetings - and women come from all over the world to participate in the /etc.
