Women and Wikipedia

The New York Times has an article out today (which requires registration to read so Southern Man refuses to provide a link) noting that only about 15% of Wikipedia editors are women.

Southern Man was going to write a lengthy analysis of this but
The Spearhead beat him to it so he will simply note the satisfaction derived from contributing to something larger than oneself and the pleasure of writing phrases or paragraphs or darn near entire articles and having your edits stand the test of time without observing that these are, by and large, activities enjoyed by men but not so much by women.
