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.

Let's face it, technology is a boys club, and it has nothing to do with ability.


It's quite a bit more than just "we don't want no stinking girls". When we accept women, they skip on giving feminine insights that a lot of tech needs.

See a very interesting talk: http://youtu.be/TmROmy5jT80
