Joseph Reagle on the gender gap in geek culture

Joseph Reagle, Assistant Professor of Communications Studies at Northeastern University and author of a new paper entitled, “Free as in Sexist? Free culture and the gender gap,” returns to Surprisingly Free to address geek feminism and the technology gender gap. According to Reagle, only 1% of the free software community and 9% of Wikipedia editors are female, which he sees as emblematic of structural problems in the geek community. While he does not believe that being a geek or a nerd is in any way synonymous with being a sexist, he concludes that three things that he otherwise loves—geekiness, openness, and the rhetoric and ideology of freedom–are part of the problem inasmuch as they allow informal cliques to arise, dominate the discussion, and squeeze out minority views.

Reagle further supports efforts to form female-only subcultures within the geek community, which opponents argue goes against the free software value of openness. 50 citazioni fondamentali.

The hotel lobby in Franklin, Tenn., has an ultra-urban loft-esque feel — exposed air ducts, austere furniture and fixtures, music videos projected onto a flat panel.

Dick Increasingly, it feels like we live in a kind of Colonial Williamburg for the 20th century. With the introduction of networked digital devices we’ve gone through an epochal technological transformation, but it hasn’t much changed the design of our physical stuff. We’re like historical reenacters hiding our digital watches under bloused sleeves to keep from breaking period.

Its mawkish tourist attractions, its pie and mash shops, its diversity, its unparalleled destruction of everyone and everything that makes it so diverse. But it's also known for its nightlife, because although clubs may be dropping off faster than developers can acquire their deeds and build luxury flats in their place, the city still offers some of the best nights out in the world—just like it has done through all sorts of scenes and subcultures. Derek Ridgers, known for his Skinheads: 1979–1984 collection and his photos of Ibiza before the rave generation arrived, has been snapping the capital's club kids for the past five decades.

Over the years, the music they move to and the clothes peeling off their sweaty bodies may have changed, but the excitement and exhibitionism of clubbers in London remains the same.
