An opportunity for girls

According to the Pew Internet and American Life Study, girls are more likely than boys to create content online. The NYT reports on this phenomenon this morning. I actually discussed this in a talk I gave to the remaining seven sisters schools a year ago. To me, such statistics show opportunities for girls getting involved in a number of fields. Journalism, video production, literary writing, web programming, music production are all areas that using blogs and YouTube and even Facebook can lead to.
