That gender thing
One of the foci on both JavaOne and RailsConf was the so called "gender problem"; that the current balance between men and women in the technological field is bad and that something needs to be done about it. I'm very happy about this getting awareness, but as my colleague Lars Westergren writes here (http://slashdot.org/~LarsWestergren/journal/172323) it seems like total hypocrisy when looking at the so called entertainment provided at these two events. We need to do better than this.
