There isn’t just a gender disparity in the tech industry, there’s tremendous disparity in who reads tech publications as well. Analytics company Royal Pingdom examined top technology blogs and found that their readership skews way male.
Of the popular blogs that Royal Pingdom examined, only Mashable comes anywhere close to a 50-50 split between male and female visitors. Sites like Techmeme and Slashdot have closer to 90% male visitors. About 72% of ReadWriteWeb’s visitors, according to Royal Pingdom’s stats, are male.
