    I also have no idea what this is about, but like it. I kind of want to know more. What exactly is being indexed…

    Hey Steve,

    On some quick Google searching, it looks like there were some studies done in Illinois about gender trends in naming babies. This might be a graph of that. Maybe.

    I dunno. I’d like to think they had some kind of scanner on the streets analyzing the facial structures of people walking by and recording the levels of androgyny in their features… :)
