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.

Okay, there's probably some discrimination. So let's replace informal discrimination with discrimination by law. If that doesn't work (still too little women), let's throw some more discrimination. After some time we may find out that there are simply less women interested in technology than men (as there are less male elementary school teachers than female).
