I was afraid to work on this article about the gender gap in computing because it’s a topic surrounded by dogma, strong feelings, and poorly conceived statistics. As a result, most coverage on it is timid and shallow. But I think the hours of interviewing and research paid off. I’m happy with how it turned out. Online-only.
It’s gotten lots of coverage:
- Interview subject Meta Brown’s mention in her series, “Meta’s Binder Fulla Women”
- Slashdot article with a misleading attribution in the headline. (My comment on it.)
- Andrew Leonard’s thoughtful musings, again with a misleading attribution. (My comment on it.)
- The Spiceworks community forum for IT/tech professionals is hosting a heated discussion in response to the article.
