T-Rex Bigger and Hungrier Than Previously Thought

gpronger writes “Researcher John Hutchinson (Royal Veterinary College in London) and Peter Makovicky (Field Museum of Natural History, Chicago) built digital models of a T-rex and then added flesh using the structure of soft tissues in birds and crocodiles as a guide. This allowed them to project body mass. By doing this for a number of specimens of different age and size, they could also evaluate growth. At maximum, the adolescents could add 11 pounds in weight in a single day. The adult was found to be 30% heavier than earlier estimates at more than 9 tons. With the size and appetite, it would lead also to the perspective that they would need a large range, and therefore also be relatively rare in the ecosystem of the time.”

Mightee writes “Graduates from Royal College of Art have discovered a way to turn hair cuttings that parlors throw away as waste into sustainable eyewear named Hair Glasses. The idea behind this is to ‘Go Green’ by stopping the use of Petroleum-based plastic frames and use an easily available, environment friendly and renewable resource.”

Where the Boys Are (Reading Tech Blogs, Apparently)

royalpingdomlogo.jpgMen outnumber women in the tech industry. This isn’t particularly newsworthy, although it continues to be quite disheartening.

Figures released today from web monitoring company Royal Pingdom highlight another repercussion of the skewed gender representation in tech – namely, the overwhelming predominance of male visitors to technology blogs.

Royal Pingdom looked a number of popular tech blogs, including ReadWriteWeb, and examined the ratio of male to female site visitors by using demographics data from Google’s DoubleClick Ad Planner.

Of the popular blogs that Royal Pingdom examined, only Mashable comes anywhere close to a 50-50 split between male and female visitors. Sites like Techmeme and Slashdot have closer to 90% male visitors. About 72% of ReadWriteWeb’s visitors, according to Royal Pingdom’s stats, are male.

In a survey from last summer, comScore found that women outnumber men on social networking sites and tend to spend more time on those sites as well. But that interest and engagement hasn’t seemed to spill over into the tech blogosphere.

What contributes to the difference? Is it a reflection of the tech industry at large? Is it the content on the sites? The authors’ gender? The editorial voice or tone? Is it the community that surrounds it?
