Re: Ninjas in Tech?
Yep, I concur with all of these points. I'm actually very comfortable with Ninjas in Tech...

Those tips all really bugged me, but the "Smile!" one hit a nerve.

Ninjas in Tech?
If we can't call ourselves "Women in Tech" should we be "Ninjas in Tech"? Totally kidding :)

Also, I think stock photo guy who's always smiling while workign is getting ahead in his career not because he's smiling, but because he has such a stunning mustache that defies gravity.

The advice to ''be respectful" irks me as well. Shouldn't everyone be respectful, regardless of gender?
