This week I’ve read some texts about men and women on Internet. To start with, “most bloggers are women“.
“According to a survey of more than 4 million blogs by Perseus Development, 56% were created by women. More bad news for the boys: men are more likely than women to abandon their blog once it’s created.”
If we admit the premise that blogs are one of the most important sources of new information on the net, we might guess that nowadays there is more text data from girls than from boys on Internet. Interesting! It’s known that each sex thinks in a different way, therefore it’s curious to read the world from the other perspective. Even so, there are people who still study the intelligence in number’s concepts, and somebody claims that “men are more clever than women“, although in practical terms there is no difference. Sometimes men and women think and understand things in a different way (like in this clever joke), but in most of the cases we can do the same things.
However, in the “tech professional” world you can hardly see a woman. At University I saw almost no girls in the Computer Science Faculty. I don’t know the reason, but I can guess it’s still a question about social roles (boys play with computers, girls with dolls). Anyway I know things’ve been changing during the last 5 years, and now girls are more likely to enter in technical studies. Even Google is supporting girls with special grants (read in Ana’s blog). I hope to see more and more women in tech positions… I want to see a new algorithm made by a girl… I want to fall in love with one of them (“damny dangerous”, but it’s worth it ;-)).
