thanks buddy ... :) Hope Beavis is doing ok :(

He's still hanging in there, Louise. Just like everyone these days, it seems.

Ellen Pao is #74. I wonder whether the KPCB scandal affected her placement on the list in either direction.

It's an alphabetical list, so nope. :)

Some day, someone will come out with a ranked list.

Till then, this is the most comprehensive list I've seen.

Update, August 28, 2012. Regarding #33 on the list, Shirley Hornstein.

This page was pointed to by TechCrunch -- Anthony Ha on @Shirls misrepresenting.

You learn something new every day.

Catch her if you can.

Well, right now she's at the GOP convention according to SFist.

SFist also links back to this page, for those of you keeping score at home.
