Julia talks about how a run-in with an early version of Gmail showed her the power of social media and launched her blogging career, membership in the Enterprise Irregulars, her invitation to be one of the first bloggers at SAP’s Sapphire event, the challenges of being a woman in the world of technology, the recent Girls in Technology gathering she orchestrated to help ease the pain, her work at Socialtext, Amazon, MingleNow, starting up her new firm, Covered Communications and the fact that Technorati’s David Sifry was once her neighbour and shared his wifi freely (sounds like a nice guy!).
