I'm probably a disgrace to my gender for saying this but I think the new study showing women in IT face "significant barriers to advancement" is a bit overblown. According to [URL="http://anitaborg.org/news/archive/new-research-reveals-significant-barriers-to-advancement-for-mid-level-technical-women/"] research conducted by the Anita Borg Institute for Women and Technology[/URL], the situation is so bad that nearly …

I just read on MediaPost about a study that found iPhone users are mean. I dont like that conclusion but it was probably based on the fact that iPhone users watch porno. Who knows? So what do you think? [url]http://www.mediapost.com/publications/?fa=Articles.showArticle&art_aid=116903[/url] Disclaimer: I am NOT involved in any way with this …
