Gadget boys (and girls)

Today, at McDonald's, I saw another father sitting at the sidelines, reading his PalmPilot while his kids played, as I often do. I've never seen a mother do that. A book, a cell phone maybe, but not a PalmPilot. They seem to continue to be gadget-boy devices. Digital cameras, on the other hand, know no gender boundaries. A number of the moms of kids in my daughter's playschool class brought them to the petting zoo this week, and when we traveled to Victoria to see the Dragon Bones exhibit a couple of weeks ago, it was the first occasion where I saw more digital cameras than film cameras, in the hands of men and women alike.
