Re: Actually
I too can take from this one, lots of old old hardware laying around. Why store this stuff (or heaven forbid throw it out) when it will make some cool furniture!

nasimson, 

If the fridge stopped working I think it's a pretty good idea to use it for storaging stuff. It's not that the shoes were sharing the space with any food. :D

Re: Actually
I had shoes that stopped working and used them to store dairy products. Didn't work out nearly as well.

Shoes in a refrigerator !!! I thought you might be the only person in the world doing so. But then I googled & I found out:

Apparently old servers cant get sold on Craigslist, but old furniture does! So much for the value of the end-of-life IT equipment.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
