Sex and the City
The world is full of people with amazing ideas. The latest example is Star Trek & the City, a Twitter feed that mixes Star Trek with Sex and the City. Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte, and Samantha are all Starfleet officers dealing with the usual relationship promises and pitfalls. Whoever is running the account certainly has the Bradshaw voice down but it's great imagining Kim Cattrall as her Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country character Lt. Valeris. I'm assuming the girls have somehow fashionized the regular Starfleet uniforms. Check out some of our favorite tweets and see how easily space explorations fits with sex talk. (via io9)
The vast majority of contributors to Wikipedia are male, according to a New York Times piece that studied the user-curated site. Not only that, but the "female-oriented" entries are generally shorter and less comprehensive than those authored by men, "for men." Really? What, exactly, determines what women are interested in, and did the NYT really make fair comparisons? Um, no. That is the answer.
