Come on. If MS got one woman out of thirty participants, they weren't trying. I can get more than that by offering free coffee and cookies. This isn't a case of "people didn't read the site and thus excluded themselves." It's a case of not enough women being invited to actually garner a significant number of female attendees, which should be a goal if MS wants decent feedback. This isn't about a lack of women in tech fields, but rather if you're a company trying to get input, you need to plan a little bit better and get a somewhat diverse pool for input, or you might as well just spare the cost and ask your engineers.

I support her speaking out, anyway. She just said she felt 'alone' and I think it's a legitimate feeling.
