One rap against cool web-based media applications is that they attract a disproportionate number of males and a disproportionate number of people who work in information technology. I just sorted the early discoverers of the Worker Browser tonight and found that we have 180 males and 19 females. We’ve hardly publicized the thing at all – these are almost all folks who have discovered it on their own. But it’ll clearly be a challenge as we move forward to reach out to women and to people who don’t spend their days online. Not that I have anything against males or cyberpersons!
While we’re talking demographics, since I reported on where folks are coming from, we’ve had participants from Brazil, Germany, Greece, New Zealand, Norway, the Philippines, and Romania. That makes workers from 29 countries and at least 37 states. Which is just so cool.
