So, apparently I'll be attending New York Comicon? I'll be going with a couple of friends. We'll be there Saturday, the 15th.

Ok actually I've seen this study breofe, sorry I didn't remember or try to google for it. :)Anyways lets put it this way: there are no developers with children in the all-male-programmers open source team I work with (some volunteers, some not, all started as volunteers). So just intuitively the free time gender gap didn't make much sense to me (not saying the gap doesn't exist for the childless, but I'm sure it looks much different). And I wasn't saying it wasn't a possible factor, just that I don't think it accounts for much. We can all think of time-heavy hobbies dominated by women (fanfic being the example here I suppose). And women go to college just like men, more then men, which is the main aquafer of fresh talent for the volunteer open source community. I also think about this guy in our community who is underway in a submarine for half the time. Obviously he isn't the most involved open source dev, but he still is one despite having little time. I would accept the gender gap as an explanation of why (in a hypothetical universe) women contributors contributed less time, but we're talking about raw #'s of people.Why there is a gender gap betweeen programmers and non-programmers in open source communities? A free time gender gap doesn't explain this either. Programming doesn't take less time then managing the release cycle or a user support forum really.Plus I think we would've noticed if a disproptionate amount of women open source devs were Norwegian. :)
