    Addie Wagenknecht interviewed Claire Evans, the author of the new book Broad Band: The Untold Story of the Women Who Made the Internet, for Forbes:


    The easy thing is to say that Broad Band is a feminist history of the Internet. That’s what I’ve been telling people. Maybe it’s more accurate to say that it’s a history of the Internet told through women’s stories: boots-on-the-ground accounts of where the women were, how they were feeling and working, at specific, formative moments in Internet history. It emphasizes users and those who design for use, while many popular tech histories tend to zero in on the box

    This book looks extremely in my wheelhouse. Can’t wait to read it.
