|Dan and Kristina Manente, founder of the Baker Street Babes
I'm a Baker Street Babe.
The designation is honorary, but I'm proud of it nonetheless.
The Babes, in case you haven't caught up yet, are an international group of tech-savvy young women who blog and podcast about their idol, Mr. Sherlock Holmes, in all his various manifestations. They also show up in person, too -- and thank heavens for that!
The youthful enthusiasm and fresh perspective of these young women was much on display last weekend at A Scintillation of Scions VI in Hanover, Maryland. At least three Babes were in attendance, two of whom -- Krinstina Manente and Lyndsay Faye -- gave wonderful talks.
As a male at the other end of the age demographic, I am grateful for their energy and their creativity. Without it, the Sherlockosphere would be a much less interesting place. Check out their podcast (41 episodes so far) and all the other excitement on their website. Tell them I sent you!
