Ross 2, Cynics 0
Back in May, I made a side bet
with Ross that when his bet with Clay
concluded, fewer than 10% of the people in the first 500 under "Internet" would be women.
Well, Ross won his bet with Clay
. And it turns out he won the bet with me, as well. When I counted today, 58 of the first 500 people were women. As I suspected, fewer toward the top than the bottom of that range. Only 6 in the first 100, and 9 more in the second 100.
I don't know that there's much to rejoice about in those numbers, but I'm still glad to have lost the bet.
