I’m a history professor who focuses on computing & labor. My award-winning first book, Programmed Inequality (MIT Press 2017), investigated how the declining proportion of women helped wreck Britain’s early lead in computing, and why this holds important lessons for the today. My current co-edited book, Your Computer Is On Fire, explores how we can understand and solve the current tech crises we’re living through.
I’m always up for talking about technology and its socioeconomic effects: send me e-mail, or follow me at @histoftech on twitter. Press inquiries welcome.
