Greetings nerdlings, Kaylee is still in Sri Lanka escaping giant spiders and other death traps, but local DJ impresario and bon vivant Trevor Risk is stepping up to not only co-host with Michael this month, but also DJ the night. If you were at last Nerd Nite you learned about the history of Nerd Nite speaker gender ratios and how it's at 48% female even though the population of Vancouver is 51% female, so this month we have three amazing female nerds to nerd out with us, including one that is going to talk about ratios. So come with a nerd friend, or come solo and meet new nerd friends, we need you!
