I can’t find anything more about it in the PHM collections online and wayback.archive.org/web/*/http://geekgirl.com.au doesn’t contain much, which is a shame cos I’d love to see and share more about this.

Weirdly, en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geek_girl says "The widespread recognition of "geek girls" as a community occurred in summer 2010, when the annual San Diego Comic-Con International included a panel entitled "Geek Girls Exist"." – hmm, really? The Webgrrls etc date back to c1995 (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aliza_Sherman#Cybergrrl_and_Webgrrls) and the Internet Archive crawl of geekgirl.com.au dates back to 1996, though sadly the content seems unreadable now.

I can’t find much with a cursory search for the old Webgrrls groups on Yahoo! groups, but @pkej suggested the usenet archive. Let me know if you have any leads or suggestions! It’d be great to get enough information together to properly document this history on Wikipedia – while women might not be fully represented in the tech world, they’ve always been present.

How do I get my Yahoo Insider to display US Top Story News and not India’s?

Question by Christine: How do I get my Yahoo Insider to display US Top Story News and not India’s?
When I turn on my computer and Yahoo Messenger uploads, it also displays Yahoo Messenger Insider which not only shows if I have new mail (I like this feature) but the news and advertising section is now displaying top stories and advertising for India. I only want to see information for the US. How do I make this my default setting?

Double click on your name. It will ask for password.
Enter it and it will provide with your account information.
In that under account setting change Set language, site, time zone to US America…
