Kno Gurlz Aloud

Violet Blue replies in her column on SFGate to the boy's-club treatment she got from Leo LaPorte, John Dvorak, Patrick Norton, and Robert Heron on LaPorte's podcast This Week in Tech in response to Forbes including her on its Web Celeb 25 list of Web celebrities. The boys on the aptly-named TWiT trashed all the women on the list.

It's nothing new that the lions of tech appear to regard the Intarwebs as their own private boys club see, for example, Badgerbag on the topic. It gets old real fast, though. Come on guys, it's the twenty-first century already, grow up a little? (I don't know about the others, though, but John Dvorak isn't about to grow up. As I put it in a comment on Majikthise, "John Dvorak is the Bob Novak of computer journalism.")
