Paul De Palma is right about one thing: no man is qualified to say for sure why any woman does anything at all, much less why she avoids Computer Science. I therefore find it surprising that all of the articles I’ve read on this subject were written by men.

Now, I am not a woman. (I hope this revelation does not surprise you.) As a man, I can unequivocally opine that this male-dominated discipline wants more women. We want it enough to hem and haw and write articles about Title IX and nature vs. nurture. Women are doing none of these things. Could it be that they just don’t care?
