Women, men, and networking

Permalinks to this entry: individual page or in monthly context. For more material from my journal, visit my home page or the archive.

Halley Suitt wonders whether the differences in how men and women interact with one another make our networking fundamentally different—and whether things are changing at all.

In her personal blog, she also notes that "it's hard to talk to people sometimes who are not parents. I don't mean to be rude, but being a parent teaches you a lot of things that non-parents will never grasp. You learn levels of forgiveness, patience and complete degradation most people without children never get to experience." She gives a good example.

My example is shorter, and is cribbed from Vicki Iovine: you're a different person if you've never caught someone else's vomit in your bare hands. At a public swimming pool.
