OpenJS World Keynote: How not to Save the World with Tech

By August 20, 2020Blog, OpenJS World

Earlier this summer, Kris Borchers hosted an interview with Dr. Joy Rankin, the author of A People’s History of Computing in the US. The interview spans everything from Dr. Rankin’s path, experience researching the history of programming, the Oregon Trail game, and how her research is being used to improve diversity in companies. This empowering keynote can help serve people – particularly young women – interested in STEM to feel impassioned about the world of computing, as well as can help shed light on the way that networks have been formed around computing.
