Guest: Sonja Bernhardt, creator of the controversial Screen Goddess IT Calendar.
One of Sonja’s Glamour Geeks?sends the scallywags scurrying.?Here’s one of the images from the Screen Goddess IT Calendar. The model is a real live IT industry woman! Fearless and fun-loving! 🙂
Here’s an item from Inventions.org’s?Female Inventors section:
“Any girl can be glamorous,” Hedy Lamarr once said. “All she has to do is stand still and look stupid.”?
The film star belied her own apothegm by hiding a brilliant, inventive mind beneath her photogenic exterior.
In 1942, at the height of her Hollywood career, she patented a frequency-switching system for torpedo guidance that was two decades ahead of its time.
The glamorous -?in a definitely NOT stupid looking way – Heddy Lamarr is one of the women who inspired Sonja Bernhardt’s project.
And here’s another woman who inspired it.
Not really an actor but a novelist and philosopher – and screenwriter – by the name of Ayn Rand – the arch defender of Capitalist Ideals.
Here’s what our guest, Sonja Bernhardt, writes about Ayn Rand writing about Marilyn Monroe.
On one of the most famous Screen Goddesses of them all, female novelist and philosopher Ayn Rand wrote that Marilyn Monroe projected “the joyous self-flaunting of a child or a kitten who is happy to display its own attractiveness as the best gift it can offer the world and who expects to be admired for it, not hurt.”
In this interview PRODOS?Worldwide speak with Sonja Bernhardt, an IT – information technology – professional, and the creator of the Screen Goddess IT Calendar – which features real life female IT professionals – posing for what is definitely not your usual girlie calendar.
Nor?is it your usual, drab, ethereal way of promoting the Land of Geeks and Nerds.
