the Week of March 17, 2014
We explore how startup culture fetishizes founders and male programmers, and discuss the role of early operations employees in tech companies. We deconstruct IT tropes and fallacies of software development, and discover the problem with “Feel Good” stories about marginalized and underrepresented people in tech. Later in the week, we cover tech hubs outside of Silicon Valley, how gendered stereotypes shape our careers, and the first Lesbians Who Tech conference in San Francisco – plus a new art startup, the genealogies of hashtags, unpopular opinions on the internet and more.
