Yet another weird SF fan

I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

Why the Decline?

Differences between male and female preferences might explain a low percentage of female computer-science majors. It does not explain a decline. The current percentage of female computer-science majors is about half the percentage it was back when Reagan was president.

My theory, for whatever it's worth, is that women who are able to think logically are avoiding college so they don't have to associate with feminists.

I suggest that computer science, and the jobs associated with it, have changed.

One huge problem with statistics is comparing apples(t) with apples(t+1), because apples(t) are actually more like oranges(t+1) than they are apples(t+1).

Makes sense to me. My impression is that computer programming is becoming an increasingly unrewarding field, and I can see this being more quickly perceived by women than by men.

A great article:

Be warned that there is some coarse language in the article.
