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

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.

During my college years I didn't always want to sit around.

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.
