Well, the conclusion is correct, but they omitted many sites that I regularly frequent. Which means they haven't done the analysis of those sites. The article says that the routine "polled the browser to find out which of the Quantcast top 10k sites were visited." Obviously MobileRead, BookCrossing, and other places where I spend the majority of my time are not in that top 10K. Interesting that for Ricky, the routine reported that she had visited gmail.com, but didn't do so for me -- and that's my primary mail location.

The algorithm easily detects the shopping gene. Given that this gene is active in women and dormant in men ...

I was just looking at my own results again. So mostly women use Yellowpages.com, and the visitors to TPB.org are almost entirely men? (That certainly explains the appalling ads there....) It took me a while to remember what I was doing there recently anyway. If I recall correctly, it had something to do with a llama. (Edit: and I didn't find what I was looking for there. There's probably a moral lesson to be learned from that....)
