BinaryGirl.com was founded by Robyn, a 25 year old tech-savvy woman from
Fremont, CA. Due to the lack of women interested in computers and technology, she decided to create a website to establish an online community of women like herself. In 1999 she started the site and in early 2000 she left her job at Sun Microsystems to pursue it full time.
Kristi Hagenbach is one of our Associate Editors. She has brought much knowledge to the publishing side of our site, and her creative spunk is definitely an asset to BinaryGirl.com. Kristi is currently attending San Francisco State University and will be graduating in May with a Bachelor's degree in English Literature.
