So I thought I’d mix it up a little bit and write a post about something that I know a little bit about: computers. One might ask what computers have to do with progressive, feminist discourse?
Well, does universally available and extremely low cost tools to access all the knowledge and resources of the internet sound progressive? Does the idea of titanic institutions who lack any accountability increasing their control of the information presented to the world concern you? What about those same institutions collecting unprecedented amounts of information about those who access that same data?
Look for a series of posts coming soon regarding these issues and more. Each piece will be presented accessibly and jargon free so that you can make more informed technology decisions. Please feel free to indicated any interest or lack of interest in the comments.
