immediately follows it up with some shit about how women are different
I think you are the one needing some perspective. Pull out an anatomy book. Look at them. They are different. Freaking awesome different. Which is why dudes always want them "involved in tech". The reason is of course different, having nothing to do with "tech" and a lot more with "biology"
You know what, maybe that's the reason why there are no women in "tech". Why the hell would they want to hang around with some creep nerds, who can only be in contact with women if they share the same workplace or play the same crap video games.
Different != inequality.
First, who cares about gender. We are all equal.
Second, most women are just not interested in geek shit. And that's ok. They like long walks in the park, they like dudes that listen to them and leave love notes in their purses. So go try that approach.
It's no secret that Slashdot's traffic has been stagnant at best, if not decreasing.
I wouldn't be surprised. Ever since timothy took over, the posts, both for writing and content, went the way of the shitter. You need an editor who knows about technology, not some wanna be nerd who doesn't understand the summaries he/she writes. No wit, no humor, no knowledge, awesome recipe for a site editor. Not.
Also, people are not stupid. They know an article from an advertisement. Not tagging slashvertisements as ads is an asshole thing.
In fact, I think that's where amazon is going. Local warehouses with same or next day delivery.
But how many of those you order a month? Vs soap, books, lightbulbs, undies and other small items that one needs quite often?
Also, if you buy the $400 GoPro Hero through amazon prime, and there's an issue with it, they will ship you a new one before you drop yours, for free return, into a UPS box.
Free shipping also means free shipping back. Free shipping also works on small items.
Dude. You are missing the whole point.
There is no need to honk. Ever.
Very seldom, if someone fell asleep at the traffick light, I give it a very short blip.
Awesome. So you are an asshole. That thing is not there to wake people up, but to avoid accidents.
So what do those 16% "nerds" (we are on slashdot) use their computers for? Just internet browsing? There's no way to not get the fan or the pump working when compiling a couple thousand c++ code. Not even on those poser designer computers.
In fifty years, we'll all be chicks.
