A visualisation of the gender disparity in engineering teams in the tech industry


This is a visualisation of the gender disparity in engineering teams in the tech industry. Created by @riblah. The data is pulled from this spreadsheet, collected and maintained by @triketora. The creator of this project acknowledges that gender is not always binary, but due to the nature of the data available, only a male/female breakdown is displayed at this time.

TAYLOR!  FW Taylor is a fascinating historical figure.  Robert Kanigel’s bio of him, “The One Best Way,” blew my mind.  Also, he had 12 kids and his family was the model for “Cheaper by the Dozen.”

How should a modern workplace be furnished, decorated, and designed? Ben Mauk explores the century-old question: http://nyr.kr/1hYDEnF

“An engineer named Frederick Winslow Taylor, best known for exalting standardization (of scheduling, wages, equipment, and so on) for the sake of productivity, advocated that managers arrange their workers into cell-like spaces tailored to the simple, unskilled labor that each would perform. His ideas—known as scientific management or, simply, Taylorism—helped to inspire not only the modern factory but also the rigidly planned mid-century office, and they remain widespread in the business world.”

Women in science!

It’s possible.  It’s not complicated. It just requires a commitment to actually do it.

Gamebuino

Indiegogo campaign to fund production of a simple stripped-down handheld console which is designed to easily create your own games (and can connect to upto 128 other devices) - video embedded below:

Gamebuino is a retro portable game console project based on Arduino. It allows you to make your own games, and even more.

It is designed so you can easily get started with your game, yet it is capable enough to make fully-featured 8-bit games and other badass projects. The library allows you to start programming your game in minutes, and the console is shipped ready to run, yet customizable thanks to the extension ports which allow you to add modules (like an accelerometer or wireless communication), or to connect several Gamebuino consoles to play in multiplayer with your mates.

You can find out more about the project at the Indiegogo campaign page here, or at the project’s website here

5 Introductory Tools to Programming
Have you been toying with the idea of learning how to program but don’t know how to get started?  Check out these introductory tools to help you begin to think like a programmer.  Figure out how a computer works, instruct computers to performs tasks, create your first game, and more. 


Scratch: One of the easiest ways to get started with programming is to remix someone else’s already existing program. Remix a project using this free programming language called Scratch. You can build games, animations, music videos, and more.

Minecraft: Use blocks to build just about anything you can imagine in a virtual world. Discover engineering concepts, architecture, mathematics, as well as critical thinking skills and teamwork.

Develop a Game: Get started on building out the code, artwork, and music for a video game. These tools will help you build an interactive experience.

Remix a Website: Never seen the insides of a website? Use Hackasaurus to hack your favorite website to have it look and do whatever you want.

Run a Node.js Server: With Node.js, you can mimic the back and forth request/response your browser sends to servers when you visit a website. Set up your first development environment.

Survey of /r/mensrights turns up pretty much exactly what you’d expect.

White, male, 17-20 years-old, and disconnected from reality.

"Yes, women are still underrepresented and underappreciated in the media startup world, but the truth is women are founding their own digital media companies. The problem is that they are largely absent from the buzzy narrative about entrepreneurs leaving the confines of traditional journalism."
