Well, this is certainly old news: women are people too! Guh. I don’t know, when I read articles like these (written by a man, of course), they always come off as “women, despite their obvious technological shortcomings, are coming online in droves…and thriving! Look at ‘em go, they’re so darn spunky!” What a load of crap. And then you post something like that to Slashdot, and you get comments like “Yay! More geek chicks!”, which, I agree, is great, but given the forum in which that comment is made, it comes off as a bunch of male construction workers hooting at any passing female.
