This is has been quite a busy week for wearable technology filled with speculation around the future of wearable technology and ultimately the impact it will have on our lives and how we inhabit the world. Manisha Mohan, a young woman studying aeronautical engineering at SRM University in Chennai, India has developed a product called SHE (Society Harnessing Equipment) in response to the recent escalation in female violence in India – most notably the Delhi gang rape of December 2012. The product, which is still in development stage, is designed to help other young women living in India fight against rape and violence in their country. Together with fellow students Niladhri Basu Bal and Rimpi Tripathi they developed a bra which shocks an attacker at 3800kv. This project and the creators are inspiring and illustrates the need for the development of wearable technology throughout the world. Wearable Tech Roundup Wearable Tech Roundup

Six months ago, we decided to make a feminist hackerspace in San Francisco. Today, Double Union is a women-centered hackerspace with 80 members. This happened incredibly fast! Our space has tables and workbenches, couches and chairs, a library of technical reference and how-to books, electronics supplies, and a growing collection of art, craft and technical tools.

At Mothership HackerMoms, the Freedom to Be Empowered At Mothership HackerMoms, the Freedom to Be Empowered Mothership HackerMoms is the first-ever hackerspace devoted to mothers and their children. Going beyond computers and programming, this community taps into the basic philosophy of hacking, explains Lisha Sterling, a professional software programmer, specializing in education and technology, and activist for alternative and experimental education. Hacking means taking control, together, of our environment, our culture, and our lives. At MotherShip Hackermoms, this also means never having to leave the kids behind.

Reagle Despite the values of freedom and openness, the free culture movement’s gender balance is as skewed (or more so) as that of the computing culture from which it arose. Based on the collection and analysis of discourse on gender and sexism within this movement over a six–year period. I suggest three possible causes: (a) some geek identities can be narrow and unappealing; (b) open communities are especially susceptible to difficult people; and, (c) the ideas of freedom and openness can be used to dismiss concerns and rationalize the gender gap as a matter of preference and choice.

Lyn Gomes, mechanical engineer and avid Maker, discusses how a hairdryer works with students in a Techbridge after-school program. Today we share a post by Linda Kekelis of Techbridge. Techbridge role model, Lyn Gomes, experienced the joy of tinkering from her early maker experiences. Lacking her own tool kit, she would “borrow” her father’s eyeglass screwdrivers to repair the answering machine. This gave her the confidence to work with larger tools and take on projects like repairing her first car and building a Motorized Barcalounger. What she didn’t know is how they would shape the direction of her life. Mentoring Girls to Make: Lessons from Techbridge | Makerspace Mentoring Girls to Make: Lessons from Techbridge | Makerspace
I'm Limor Fried, and This Is How I Work Hi Limor! Thanks for coming by, I'm a big fan of your work with Adafruit. A couple of questions for you! First, how do you pick and choose among your projects? If your desk or inbox looks the way I think it does, I'm betting there are a lot of things in progress at the same time, and since they're all things that take thought and energy, how do you prioritize between them and pick what to work on?

Geek Girl Camp Geek Girl started in March of 2008 on my birthday when I just became so frustrated hearing stories of woe from bright, articulate women who did not know the basics of computers and the Internet, had a penchant for being taken advantage of by computer gimmicks and overly anxious sales clerks who liked to believe they really DID need an extended warranty for that 42 inch plasma, so maybe they should speak with their husband who knows more about that stuff than the little lady… Ugh. These are all true stories of the women I adore in my life. Like my Mom. And my girlfriends. And female clients.
This brief biographical sketch was done for Ada Lovelace Day, organized by my good buddy Suw Charman. I think I in was a pub at the time. True: Most of it. Except for the inaccurate bits. It’s close enough for comics. Read More About Ada Lovelace. Lovelace– The Origin | 2D Goggles

Whenever I talk with someone in the maker community about incorporating makerspaces into public library services, the initial response is almost always the same: “That is AWESOME” and “You need to start with the community-who is going to use the space?”. When I first was developing this ‘makerspace in a public library concept’ I would answer the second question with, well, everyone. My kind friends in the various hacker/maker spaces across the country would get a little quiet and then say something like, “Cool. But it has to grow organically. adLIB2.0 | Lauren Britton Smedley: practices spontaneous librarianship. Lover of web 2.0+ tech. Engaged in transliteracy development.
Make: Online | What Does it Mean to be a Woman Hackerspace Member? I wasn’t sure what the answer to that question might be, so I interviewed seven female hackerspace members (actually, one is an ex-member) to get their take on what it’s like. Leave a comment with your (constructive) thoughts! Note: All photos in this article were taken by Anne Petersen at Pumping Station: One and used with permission.
