Microsoft Research has developed a tool to measure how butch is a web site. (Via Doug Tygar.) *In Theory* scores 54% male. It must be all those manly posts about math. (Although I have to agree with the first comment here.)

szopayeah, and think that this demo also claims that google is used only by women :P

HelgerWell, my blog is 53% male. At least it predicted the age correctly (the correct age group is followed by 18-24, however).

I also recommend to test this: http://helger.livejournal.com/26429.html

Simone SeveriniMy very standard-boring academic page is 64% female. The page of Vogue is 60% female.

June 28, 2006 at 5:51 pm

AnonymousThe Berkeley computer science webpage (www.cs.berkeley.edu) is 89% female. I wish!

June 29, 2006 at 5:13 am

PaulEstimated gender predictions for CS department home pages:

Washington CSE Female 98%

Berkeley CS Female 89%

MIT EECS Female 82%

UCLA CS Female 81%

UT Austin CS Female 80%

Wisconsin CS Female 80%

Harvard EECS Female 75%

MIT CSAIL Female 70%

Stanford CS Female 69%

Harvard CS Female 64%

CMU CS Dept Female 63%

UCSD CSE Female 59%

Berkeley EECS Female 57%

CMU CS School Female 53%

Georgia Tech College Male 53%

Georgia Tech CS Div Male 56%

Cornell CS Male 55%

Princeton CS Male 60%

Illinois CS Male 76%

Any theories?

June 29, 2006 at 8:05 am

AnonymousThe numbers from Princeton and Illinois, i.e. http://www.cs.princeton.edu/ and http://www.cs.uiuc.edu/ seem incorrect.

June 29, 2006 at 8:18 am

LucaYou mean, the other numbers seem correct?

June 29, 2006 at 8:01 pm

Anonymousno, in so far as the site actually says that Illinois is 54% female.

on the other hand, http://www.nra.org/ is 72% male. but oddly enough, the NAMBLA home page is 60% female.

June 30, 2006 at 7:08 am

AnonymousActually if you plug in

http:/www.cs.uic.edu/

and have URL rather than query clicked you do get 76% male for Illinois’ CS department website. Try it yourself.

AnonymousThe last comment is correct, but the original poster clearly intended UIUC (Urbana-Champagne) and not UIC (Chicago), given the caliber of departments they listed.

DDlooks like the handy-work of Microsoft’s R&D group in Sigma in Beijng. the bad english in “Unknow with following probability” is a dead giveaway.
