One out of every four children born in the U.S. today is Hispanic. In Texas, Hispanics are the fastest growing portion of the population. In 2006, 35.7% of Texans were Hispanic, recent projections are even higher now. So where are the Hispanics? Are Latinos online? Are they content producers? Are they technologists? Are they influencers? Or are they staying off line because of the digital divide? Recent studies have shown us that the Hispanic community is growing exponentially in its online relevance and is in fact growing in not only consumption but development at rates faster and higher than those of its non-Hispanic US peers. We are online and we are a force to be reckoned with. Our panel Latinas and Technology: Beauty, Brains and Blogging intends to explore five success stories of Latinas and their communities in this space. We will look at the numbers, the opportunities and five related case studies which show that Hispanics in the US are innovating online and thriving technologically as content producers, technologists and businesswomen, flexing their political and economic muscle online and offline. The opportunities this presents for both the Hispanic community and those interested in engaging the growing Latino community are infinite. Come out and join us at Latinas and Technology: Beauty, Brains and Blogging and let's make sure our presence is known. Let's share what we've been able to do to date and where we are going!
