A new article on Grok Code (which I found thanks to Slashdot), "Famous Programmers From Adleman to Zimmermann," looks at 222 famous programmers. The author provides graphs that illustrate "projects that propelled them to fame, the number of projects it took to make them famous, and the relative numbers of men and women who make up this elite group of famous hackers."

The breakdown: 97.07 percent men, 2.48 percent women, and .45 percent transexuals.
