Women in IT as compared to Women sorta associated by default with kindof IT

Julie Lerman points to a post and comment discussion related to a subject that’s been on my mind a lot this last week: Women in IT suprised by Women in IT; about a woman attending a Women in IT networking event where the weblog author found she was the only woman there who actually works with technology:

Me: So what do you do at XYZ?
She: I’m in sales and you?
Me: I’m a programmer.
She: O, the boring part of IT.

There’s also an associated iWeek article.

Though this conversation happened in South Africa, it could easily have happened here, in the States.
