Gender and Programming...

I was editing a contribution for the International Handbook of Virtual Learning Environments and I sent the following along at the end of my comments.

Rather than trying to get girls interested in what may in fact be a male-privileging programming language, why not consider developing a programming language that is gender neutral or a female-privileging programming language.
I'm not sure what I think of what I said there. I'll have to mull it over for a while."
