Jeanette Symons, a cofounder of several telecommunications startups and hero to girl geeks, is believed dead in a plane crash in Maine. Symons was flying her own Cessna Citation. Her most recent venture, Industrious Kid, runs Imbee.com, a social network for children. Her death proves a sad truth: Women aviators are as good as men at getting themselves killed. In death, we are all equal. [Boston Globe]
