Yeah, I thought that title would get your attention! (Actually, it’s a take on a credit card ad.)
I was reading the Fall 2006 (I know, I know…I’m a little behind in my reading.) issue of Savvy, the magazine put out by Women in Technology International and ran across a blurb on technology gadget ownership by women and by men.
"Women were found on average to own 6.6 technology devices while men own 6.9…The survey of 1,400 women and 700 men, aged 15 to 49, found that given the choice, women would opt for tech items rather than luxury items like jewelry or vacations. The study also found that 77 percent of women surveyed would prefer a new plasma television to a diamond solitaire necklace and 56 percent would opt for a new plasma TV over a weekend vacation in Florida."
As I pondered these statistics (and wondering if they had offered shoes instead of jewelry and vacations would the results have been the same? LOL) I wondered how our NY DEN members compared.
So here’s my challenge to you: By April 15th (yes, Tax Day!) send me a digital image of what’s in your ‘wallet’ (or purse, or…hmmm…wonder what I should call the male equivalent?) in terms of digital gadgets. Please also list the items in your e-mail. Also in your e-mail make sure to tell me your name (if you’d rather just identify yourself with a first name and last initial that’s fine), your school, and your town. Also include the top item on your ‘digital wish list’. E-mail me everything to firstname.lastname@example.org I’ll compile a PowerPoint, develop a SlideShare presentation, and upload in a future post.
