In a tweet heard around the tech world, former Twitter creator and Square founder and CEO Jack Dorsey sent out a tweet over lunchtime with a picture of his interns (pictured, right):

Almost instantaneously, both women and men reacted to the tweet (and the little sandwiches with the crusts cut off)

Women 2.0 is a locus of technical women working in and on startups. We have Founder Friday events in 13 cities globally every first Friday of the month where you can meet plenty of them.

In addition, Bay Area Girl Geek Dinners hosts hundreds of technical women regularly in the San Francisco Bay Area. Just saying…

Better luck next time, Jack. You have plenty of suggestions on how to change the ratio moving forward.
