jofish22: (hard at work)
Ever wanted a quick-and-dirty gender breakdown of a conference, class, program committee, list of awards or guest list?

Use my new, handy-dandy Genderyzer to get a quick count of men, women, people using only their initials, and people it's just not sure about.

http://cemcom.infosci.cornell.edu/cgi-bin/genderyze/genderyze.py

Genderyzer takes as input a text file of names, like this:

Jimmy Cricket, Ph.D
John "O'Groats" Highlander
F. Scott Fitzgerald
Jane M. M. Murphy
M. Peterson
e. e. cummings
Winnie the Pooh
...

and will tell you that there's three men, two women ('Winnie' is generally female) and two people using just their initials. And there's more! The Genderyzer's information is drawn from a wide variety of sources on the web, and even learns from its users. Try using this list of authors from NordiCHI'06 and contribute to the program's expertise about Scandinavian names! (Well, until it knows all of them, of course.)

Use Genderyzer today!
