Katherine yes I’m sure it’s intended as an inclusive place. I just know how certain groups can tend to dominant a space and that’s enough to make me avoid them. A concerted effort to welcome people who might not consider themselves to belong to a tech culture would go a long way I think.
Shannon, yes the $150 one was the one that stood out for me. Even $25, though it doesn’t seem like much, is possibly too much for people who are struggling to pay rent. I definitely went through a phase of my life not too long ago where I couldn’t justify paying $25 for something “indulgent”. I don’t know what the answer is, though. I understand there are costs associated with such things.
