Wolfram Alpha & curated knowledge about man & woman

The web was abuzz with Wolfram Alpha the past week and I too took a test drive with varying results.

Among other things I simply entered the terms 'man' and 'woman'. The results are interesting to say the least. Click here to see the output for 'woman' with the use as word option flagged (which is not available when entering man...) and tell me what you think!


I've had some mixed results. There are times when I've been very pleasantly surprised by the output, and times where I've thought, "Seriously? Come ON."
I think that Wolfram's responsiveness to user feedback is going to make or break the service.

I wonder if this would happen if more women were computer scientists...
