The internet is powered by open source technology—exciting software that's built collaboratively from the bottom-up. Open source is meant to be free and equal, but then why do men continue to dominate open source sites like Wikipedia? We investigate with the help of data architect Selena Deckelmann, English professor Dr. Ximena Gallardo, and a nationwide “feminist intervention” into Wikipedia.
All of this in under 30 minutes. Listen in!
This episode features music from Pantaleimon. The “open source fuck yeah” photo is by Kirsten Comandich. Learn more about the Wikipedia Art & Feminism edit-a-thons at their Wikipedia page (how convenient!).
