Technology’s Man Problem: NY Times Article about Women in Technology

I wrote a few posts last week about encouraging girls to learn code and pursue computer science.  A friend of mine from Seattle posted this article to her Facebook page.  Perfect timing!  

Elissa Shevinsky can pinpoint the moment when she felt that she no longer belonged.

It’s a really interesting story and an interesting issue at hand.  One woman talks about how bringing attention to women in technology only perpetuates the problem and brings attention to the fact that she’s a woman rather than a great technologist…But on the other hand, how can you not comment on such a sexist app?

Hmmmmm.
