Inside App Camp for Girls with lead developer Natalie Osten

This is a great thing. Getting girls more interested in tech careers is a must for the US economy (and every industrialized nation's economy as well, come to think of it.)

Great concept, getting girls interested in application development -- though I have to chuckle at the irony that the lead developer is an apparent lesbian that looks and sounds like a boy. If there wasn't a name tied to interview and I didn't read the synopsis... I wouldn't have known it was a girl.

Why is that ironic? What difference does it make if she "looks like a boy". That has nothing to do with the story.
