» Where were the women?

The Verge’s Russell Brandom:

There was something missing from the stage at last night’s Sony event, and it wasn’t just the final price, release date, or physical console for the PS4. With almost 20 different speakers over two hours, not a single woman took the stage.

Usually these kinds of complaints about industry-wide problems hit Apple first. While I’m pleasantly surprised Cupertino isn’t being trotted out again as the poster child for the technology industry’s woes, the only female I remember appearing onstage at an Apple event in the last 10 years is Roz Ho when she headed up Microsoft’s Mac applications group and that was years ago.

Pro tip to Sony: you make people sit through an overly long presentation that doesn’t show the product you’re talking about and it gives time for people to think about these things.
