    When I made that remark about the members of the Public Seismic
Network (PSN; see, e.g., ) largely consisting of
men escaping into the garage from their wives, children, and families
(an observation originally made by my friend, Benjamin Gardner, a USGS
Volunteer for Science who did alot of work with the PSN in the early
1990's), I was not being mindlessly sexist. Over the last decade, I have
kept my eye out for the appearance of women in the international group
of amateur and not-so-amateur seismologists which now numbers over 300
members worldwide; but, unfortunately, most of them so far have been
nerds, not nerdess's.
