❖ Midnights at the Hive Mind
I tʼs been a strange summer for me, sleep-wise. Iʼve
been working at home, and without an external
structure, my sleep cycle has evolved to a schedule
usually seen only in teenagers and the severely jet-
lagged. I sleep so late that I canʼt bring myself to
admit the hour to anyone — it shames me just to have
the dog know what time I get up!
But I try to redeem myself by working at the
computer long past midnight, which is when I ﬁnd
myself visiting online forums populated by friendly
young men. Now, please donʼt stop reading there,
because itʼs truly not what it sounds like!
Website development is what Iʼve been working
conﬁguration. This is not actually programming, my
son informs me, but itʼs close enough for an old broad
like me. Fortunately, when I get stuck, there is help just
a click away at any hour, day or night. It turns out that
thereʼs a sort of “hive mind” always buzzing at online
message boards on these topics, and all the bees are
young men, giving each other helpful suggestions like,
“Dude, in the index.php, try adding style = ʻposition:
relativeʼ to one of the divs in the hornnav module.”
Sure, thereʼs an occasional young woman, or an
old guy (my age, that is) on the board. But from my
All Natural Yogurt • Fresh Juice • Smoothies • Curbside Service • Free WiFi • Art
observations, it appears that I am the only over-50
female on the planet engaging in this type of late-night
code wrangling. And thatʼs a shame, because I think a
lot of empty-nested women with insomnia would love
it. Fiddling around “under the hood” of a website is as
compelling as a knotty crossword puzzle or Sudoku,
In Downtown Winter Park plus it gives you something to show for your effort.
The dearth of females in this area is as mystifying
100% All Natural Yogurt
Live and Active Cultures to me as our under-representation among ﬁnger-style
guitarists, National Geography Bee contestants, and late
night talk show hosts. I think itʼs time for a change.
So, hereʼs to new interests at any age and time
of day, and without preconceived notions of gender
suitability. Maybe, when I get done with my current
