Women are from strong, men are from weak

I’m in the Saturday morning opening session at blogher, which is about whether women should “learn to play by the rules” or “change the rules.”
danah boyd just got up to clarify a misstatement claiming that women don’t do social networking as much as men do. danah explained that women and men (tend to) do social networking in different ways.
“Women form dense social networks with fewer people and stronger, more intimate ties. Men tend to spread it around.”
