    There's nothing wrong with males of the species discussing issues that directly impact females of the species. We are all in this madness together and the issue of gender imbalance in the software/IT world affects all of us, directly and indirectly.

    With that said, referencing the picture on the wall, isn’t the problem maybe that the current big picture is a picture of a man? Wink

    More women buy consumer electronics now days than men.http://seattlepi.nwsource.com/business/156640_womantech15.html

    Why is it more men than women who post on this forum/the technology world- ? I don’t think it’s because there are more men than women in the world. The numbers are almost equal. Is it possible that the 'architecture' (meaning the culture, the devises and just about every thing ells pertaining to technology) has been built by men? I don’t know how attractive a male’s world is to a female. (Well, actually my wife likes to remind me Smiley)

    I am fortunate to work at a place that will quickly hire any female who shows the ability to accomplish the task. It helps make for an environment that doesn’t fall into mono gender rut. Though there are women who work where I do, they are still the manority.Any one able to point out a technology company that’s predominantly female? I think it would be interesting to see how the companys differ.

    What may be more useful is to interview an expert that has interviewed hundreds of women in technology so that we can get sweeping, broad strokes with more informative power based on statistics and hard research. Surely someone who works for Slate or maybe even MS NBC can relate.

    I think your post is great and provocative. I address the comment regarding the big picture. I think it’s good to view the sweeping broad strokes of this demographic but would be cautious not forget the intricate stencil work found in the details. I to would love to see more of both on channel 9. Though I question weather or not just interviewing an “expert that has interviewed hundreds of women in technology” will produce the desired result you seek. Take the opening screen shot of this post for an example, the image on the wall. When you look at the big picture it appears to be a blurry face of some one we may or may not recognize. The interesting point of the image is made when taking a closer look at its individual parts. It’s the postum notes that make this image interesting. I appreciate this interview from the point that it digs into what makes up the bigger picture. With the given number of women in technology in contrast to the number of men, makes me wonder also just how crisp the image is when viewed from a far. I would like to see. please see link- http://channel9.msdn.com/shows/WM_IN these help paint the picture.

    If i do not fallow what your saying, please feel free to give more clarification. =)
