📚 Just finished the introduction of Data Feminism & am jotting down some thoughts. I hope to expand on these later.
To what extent and how do the 7 principles of data feminism intersect/interact with Jennifer Armbrust’s 12 principles for prototyping a feminist business?
Women were the first computers. Is there a relationship between this history and the default woman-coded voices of digital virtual assistants that goes beyond generic sexism?
I acknowledge that I live and work on unceded Lumbee, Skaruhreh/Tuscarora, Cheraw, Catawba, Saponi, Occaneechi, and Shakori land. I give respect and reverence to those who came before me. I thank Holisticism for the text of this land acknowledgement.
We must acknowledge that much of what we know of this country today, including its culture, economic growth, and development throughout history and across time, has been made possible by the labor of enslaved Africans and their ascendants who suffered the horror of the transatlantic trafficking of their people, chattel slavery, and Jim Crow. We are indebted to their labor and their sacrifice, and we must acknowledge the tremors of that violence throughout the generations and the resulting impact that can still be felt and witnessed today. I thank Dr. Terah ‘TJ’ Stewart for the text of this labor acknowledgement.
