This code, this way of interacting, it's borne from the fact that much of the time, it's just cis men talking to cis men, with no diverse voices in the room to change the pattern of conversation.

And it all maps up to how we build interfaces and collect data. "Tech" is "tech" as we know it because of the culture. Computer science is basically a specialized social science or applied anthropology.

Thank you for your voice.
