UPDATE: Google Kills Profile of Female Engineer on Google+ Adafruit’s Limor “Ladyada” Fried

Pt 101355-1

Limor was getting ready for the electronics show and tell tonight and Google suspended her profile. For “violating Google’s Community Standards” – Here’s a note from her…

Google suspended my Limor Fried “Ladyada” Google+ profile, no show-and-tell tonight… It’s my real name, a picture of me – my posts and my nickname. I made sure it wasn’t “Adafruit Industries” and specifically me when google asked people to only use real names in their profiles.

I was going to post here on MAKE with details on her weekly electronics show-and-tell (previous article here) – but the show-and-tell is canceled this week, sorry folks – the Ask an Engineer show will still go on as usual.

UPDATE: Limor tells me she is now able to view her profile again, the Google+ gods have brought her back from the dead!
