Comment on "WWDC 2006: The Gender Imbalance"
by Daniel Jalkut — Aug 09
Hmm - I agree with you that it's a problem - the shortage of women in the technical workforce in general, and in particular it would seem as Mac developers.

But there's something very ironic about the way you're analyzing it. Referring to the few who showed up and are part of this <em>professional conference</em> as "girls" and suggesting that their presence would help by giving men somebody to flirt with at the beer bash.

I'm sure your intentions are good here, but I think you should be more careful about the message you might be sending to prospective female attendees.
