In February 2010, at CaseCamp, a Social Media unconference, a presenter demonstrating Boxee showed a Suicide Girls (link is NSFW) application, with the encouragement of one of the event organisers.

Kate Raynes-Goldie (@oceanpark) tweeted about it:

i love #casecamp but showing the suicidegirls app on boxee and naked boobies not the best way to encourage women in tech #smwto

The CaseCamp incident is an example of a sexualized presentation which can contribute to a hostile and unwelcoming environment for women at Technical conferences.
