In the News This topic comes up quite a lot on technology websites, but I generally try to steer clear from it as much as possible, since I'm not the one to talk about it (you know, with me being a man and all that), however, I feel it might be a good idea to just get my opinion out there and be done with it. The topic of women in IT is a hot-button issue, so let me just go out guns blazing: assuming women need special treatment, help, protection, and affirmative action is just as insulting and degrading as outright claiming women have no place in IT - maybe even more so.

l3v1,

"Well, nicely implying that in a meritocracy women would rule ;) "

At first I see the wink, so I think your only kidding...ok fine.

"I find that funny and baseless"

But then what's this about? I said "women would have much more prominent roles", how do you feel that's baseless?

I didn't write that women would rule in a meritocracy - you added that. But if it turned out they did rule in a meritocracy, then perhaps they'd merit it after all, don't you think? ;)
