Required Reading: Technically Wrong by Sara Wachter-Boettcher

Posted March 4, 2018 in Findings

I’ve followed Sara Wachter-Boettcher‘s work for a few years now, and she’s incredibly inspiring. I’ve mentioned the podcast she co-hosts with Jenn Lukas and Katel LeDû, No, You Go, at least a couple of times on this blog as well. I also recommend listening to Sara on this episode of the Responsive Web Design podcast last fall.

I’m about half-way through her book, Technically Wrong, and this should be required reading for anyone who works in tech…and anyone who uses tech! It’s very well-written and easy to read, and full of heavy facts and stories that are relevant to everyone.

Technically Wrong combined with the conversations on No, You Go and my recent involvement with Write, Speak, Code and Global Diversity CFP Day here in LA, have taught me to be much more mindful of others’ experiences as well as my own – I realize I tend to be a little too okay with “the way things are”.

Next up on my reading list is Weapons of Math Destruction by Cathy O’Neil – it’s been mentioned a couple of times on Shoptalk Show.
