In our first issue of 2016, we explore our beliefs (dreams? projections? fantasies?) about artificial intelligence, look beneath the surface of tech “diversity initiatives,” and discuss the impact of transmisogyny in the interview process. We think about what — and who — gets acknowledged in open source and open culture, and how to build healthier communities and tooling. We reflect on BDSM culture in the digital age, analyze how “awareness” operates in tech, and critique how White Feminism functions in geek and gaming spaces.
