My name is Michele. That would've been my HN handle, but: http://micheleincalifornia.blogspot.com/2014/03/mz-not-feminist-handle.html|
I'm a divorced single mom with health issues and special needs kids. Online forums help me keep my sanity. So, I sometimes post and comment quite a lot.
Over time, I put together objective data indicating that I was "prominent" for a woman here, in spite of still being ridiculously short of the leaderboard. My karma hit 10K on 01/29/15. Currently, I seem to be the highest ranked woman here, which is sort of silly because I never managed to get a tech job, even though I have a Certificate in GIS.
