New Yorker annoys others

Looks like feminist bloggers aren't the only ones annoyed with the New Yorker, due to the lopsided gender ratio of its conference on the future.

- there's an essay in the NYTimes complaining about the New Yorker's attitude towards poetry.

The NYTimes has no room to complain about skewed gender ratios of course - the NYTimes op-ed columnist roster has the gender ratio of a Smurf hive colony, with Maureen Dowd playing the role of Smurfette to perfection. (Paul Krugman is Brainy Smurf of course.)

Over at Sivacracy, Liz Losh discovers a gaming conference, Living Game Worlds III that doesn't deny that females are half the human race.
