A couple of weeks back I made note of a survey that indicated, among other things, that 70% of those working in the web development field felt that there was definitely no gender bias in their workplace. The irony being that the sample audience responding to that question was 84% percent male.

Rich Bowen points out today an ongoing uproar in the Ruby community about sexism and a general lack of professionalism at a technical conference and the community as a whole.

So much for that lack of gender bias....

Here's the thing, this isn't about some hippy pie-in-the-sky can't-we-all-just-get-along. As I mentioned previously this is about the strength of an industry as a whole, "groupthink can lead to the lost of ... creativity, uniqueness, and independent thinking."

As J Aaron Farr says in his own commentary, "in the long run, a large, diverse community of contributors provides ... stability and quality."
