Comment on "WWDC 2006: The Gender Imbalance"
by MJ — Aug 10
Dave Winer got into hot water recently because of his reference to women at the BlogHer conference. I think there's still a lot of people who are sensitive to such issues.

There is a dearth of women in technical professions, this much is obvious - just as there are fewer female train spotters, role-players and model enthusiasts.

Another factor? My wife studied for a science degree and then a science PhD. She then decided she didn't want to work in science. (Nevermind the waste of public funding as she was grant aided). The whole "family" thing is a real reason why there aren't more intelligent women in science/engineering.
