why there are "few" females in startups

A very short and intuitive post:

Do you wanna know what's working in a "world-class" startup look like? It a loop over ( Coding -> Beer -> Coding -> Beer -> Coding -> Beer) until you faint. Then you will deliver the demo, get some funding, grow, celebrate your success with Beer and writing some code again. That's why there are "few" females in startups and girls don't like Nerds. This a "Masculine" area, seriously !!

Django VS Tomcat; A productivity perspective

Attention: This post is not accurate. I was just a Tomcat noob on those days...

These days I'm fully obsessed with developing Apache Tomcat and Django at the same for two separate projects.
It's provided me a comprehensive view over development life-cycle for both of these technologies. I'll explain pros and cons of them soon, but there are some prominent points which are undeniable. For an experienced programmer, the rate of productivity in Django is about 5-10 times more than Tomcat (If, for example, we consider the development time as a base ranking). Although Tomcat is not a complete web framework like Djnago and doesn't provide such functionalities (It's a so called Web Container), but the differences still matter, I guess.
Now, I think I do know why Paul Graham told great hackers prefer to choose Python over Java, and why most recent startups choose python/ java/ Scala/ Erlang, etc. for their development. It is the first time that I have such a great practical experience and I highly recommend to try to develop two different technologies by comparing them from productivity perspective. It will be a mind blowing experience.
I'll go into technical details soon ....

UPDATE:   Now, after a while, I can say that they are not comparable by any means. Comparing Django VS. Tomcat , from Productivity perspective, is like comparing F-22 VS. C-46 aircrafts !!

Goodbye academia, I get a life.

A visionary article which tells the same thing that I told before.
Now, I'm pretty sure that my previous thoughts on science was a raw illusion. Reality is much more different than story books.
Now, I'm so glad that I know it with my body and soil. I do believe that startups world is more challenging and wild, but has more connection to the real-world. Nevertheless, I still love science as my main source of reason and cognition to universe. I BELIEVE in science, not because it's just science, but because I have no other source of trust ...
