Can you judge a Web 2.0 service by the people who come to its parties? If so:
- Digg: Sweaty, socially awkward dudes.
- Tumblr: Brainy ladies and the people who like them.
The geek-girls were out in force. “Tumblr is totally estrogen-y,” said blogger Jessica Gold Haralson. “If anything, it’s a complete doughnut fest.”
Event organisers pegged the 200 attendees at “60% female / 40% male.” That seems about right to us. A stage was set up for gamers to take a spin on the Xbox 360 game Rock Band, and boy-wonder Tumblr founder David Karp took to the plastic guitars for a rendition of Radiohead’s “Creep.”
