No geeks please, we're a modelling agency

Anina is a fashion model with a passion for technology. Recently, her agency gave her an ultimatum: Quit tech blogging, or get fired.

Anina writes, "If you have been wondering why i have not been posting a lot since coming back from germany, it's because my agency gave me an ultimatum: either quit doing the technology stuff, or leave the agency. they say that fashion and technology do not go together."

Media Girl has compiled bloggers' reactions to Anina's story.
