Can you believe that it’s the end of June already? I sure can’t! The past week was quite a blur. I attended AdaCamp and Open Source Bridge which were both super fun! I’ll have posts up this week talking about all the things I learned. In the meantime, check out these links to get your brain going on this last day of the month!
A few weeks ago popular design magazine A List Apart published “We Have Work to Do: #yesallwomen and the Web”. It wasn’t just a report of the #yesallwomen movement, like some other tech blogs. The ALA was the only tech publication that I saw not only mentioned #yesallwomen (few did even that) but agreed and pledged a new editorial agenda because of it. They are now committed to amplifying the words of people who respect all members of our tech community and to seeking out diverse contributors. And it struck a chord! The comments are full of nice people applauding ALA for publicly supporting diversity. Tech culture win, right?
It’s soft and quiet here in Portland, which is perfect get-writing-done weather! I’m looking forward to launching some updates to my website this week and putting together some longer-form posts for Venn. What are you up to this week?
