Programmer Father Asks: What Gets Little Girls Interested In Science?

anchor_tag Re:Yeesh (584 comments)

How about cultural differences as well? I see a lot more Asian and Indian women (of native orient) in technical / science roles than American. I'd imagine it has something to do with cultural differences and how they perceive fields or "girl things" and "guy things". Different cultures are different, and different genders are different.

Study: People Would Rather Be Shocked Than Be Alone With Their Thoughts

How much of this is due to age as well? Methinks privileged college kids (compared to adults in society) may be a poor selection for a test like this. I have a memory of my childhood where my grandmother would take me to a park to play. I recall being astonished that she'd be content to just sit there and watch me or read a book and not get "bored". I feel over time my ability to be patient and focus more has grown with age.

Mozilla Ditches Firefox's New-Tab Monetization Plans

anchor_tag Re:That's not who we are at Mozilla (195 comments)

Thanks for recommending this! I Just installed it and it appears to be modern browsing (tabs, css3, html5) with the look and feel of an older browser. I was getting fed up with the incremental death of the toolbar, browser bar etc.. I definitely recommend others giving this a try for an alternative with a retro look.

Ask Slashdot: Secure cloud solutions for friends and family?

anchor_tag anchor_tag writes  |  about a year and a half ago

anchor_tag (2971059) writes "I'm sure there are plenty of disparate solutions out there, but has anyone compiled a list, or attempted to create a personal "cloud system" for sharing and communicating with friends and family? In light of the recent NSA and other government spying of multiple social networks, it would be interesting to find a self-hosted solution for common tasks such as note sharing, email, documents and more."
