Interesting take on the lack of diversity in tech.

This along with a bench. Would you have imagined that we would consider connecting these items before?

Not the new literacy but the most underrepresented in my opinion.

Great new study.
Lens released a new study for Mobile Future in partnership with +United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and +LATISM

Survey results reveal that 62% of Hispanic business owners credit mobile technology for growth, with 83% saying mobile technology increases productivity.

a sad reality. It's the same stereotypical concept that believes that women have "chosen" low paying jobs.
$10.86. That's how much the federal minimum wage would be if it had kept up with inflation over the past 40 years. Instead, it’s $7.25... or $290 for a paid 40-hour work week (before taxes): http://www.raisetheminimumwage.org via +Economic Policy Institute

How many people were around when you were hand coding and didn't have time for this?
Here's a general outline for the website design process.  It's not surprising that the landing page is such an important part of the designing.  It is, after all, the first thing people see.

Very interesting read from +Anil Dash, thanks for sharing this. I'm also very intentional about how I engage with people online.

Since we are constantly talking about why women don't lean in or put themselves out there this is the beginning of having that conversation. And please don't just say get offline, if you are afraid. The percentage of women harassed online is at over 70% when men are at a mere 22%. Let's get at how to stop this behavior. Women should feel just as welcomed online or in tech as men feel. And as +Elon James has said in his interview today on the Melissa Harris-Perry Show  women of color get attacked both based on their sex and race at the EXACT same time. Imagine how over whelming that is.
