This is our third issue, Lean Out. We look at evictions and gentrification in the Bay Area and open source projects to combat them. Learn about the politics of how we define “tech workers,” meet a startup focused on community-based sign language interpreting, and explore the contradictions of Lean In ideology in a sexist society. Later, we hear about quitting STEM, discuss starting companies without venture capital, cover care-giving in the age of quantified self, analyze what’s behind the gendered language debate and consider archetypes of women CEOs.
