Older fathers have 'geekier sons' (would-be programmers?)

This is interesting - wonder if it applies to many of us as programmers?

Men who delay starting a family are more likely to have “geekier” sons, a study suggests.

They were brighter, more focused and less bothered about fitting in - according to the “Geek Index” devised by King’s College London.

The mother’s age had no impact, and daughters seemed to be immune.

One scientist said a trend for delayed parenthood might mean we were heading towards a “society of geniuses” able to solve the world’s problems.

I am the youngest in my family, so sort of fit into this - though, wouldn’t exactly class myself as ‘bright’ :lol:
