Gender Predictor

I've recently migrated this blog, and the older posts might not yet be satisfactorily cleaned up. Apologies for the temporary mess.

Here is a simple web app to predict your gender from your first name using historical data. It demonstrates what the gender package for R does by showing how the genders associated with names have changed over time.

More on why I made this app when I have time to write about the rOpenSci unconference.
