Ah, I see what you mean. Soeaking for me, I talk a lot about development stuff in IRC, so I don't feel the need to post about it in my journal. It's mostly for writing down various stuff and oftentimes, I will go through phases. For example, right now I have a new hobby, knitting, which I post about. Before that, it was me starting to get involved with DW, before that fandom.
I have thought about starting a science and Atheism blog, but I am never sure whether I can actually blog about something consistently. At the very least, I need a place where I can write down random stuff without feeling like I am off-topic in my own journal.
Oh, and I think I just misunderstood your sentence: They are involved in conversations which are interesting but none of which seem to have any connection to getting things done.
In my non-native speaker, early-morning brain, I somehow thought 'none of which' referred to 'They' and not to 'conversations'. Ouups. Now I get what you meant.
Of course this is only my view of the subjects, you might see them in a totally different light and as I wrote I might have totally misunderstood what Su-shee meant "getting things done".
Well, for me, programming certainly is mostly a tool for getting things done, although I *do* enjoy the process of programming very much - the seeing the problem, breaking it down and then solving it things. But I can never be sure how much of that might be a gender thing, of course :)
