Great review and list at ChipChick, The Top 13 Women Who Impacted Technology in 2010. The list is not at all conclusive and they even make a point saying so, but they listed a good sample of names and fields. From the typical (Twitter exec) to the less common (neuroscientist!), there is a good selection of women’s contributions to this year’s advancements. Considering women are a minority in technology and science, it’s great to see some recognition around these role models. From the article’s intro:
2010 has been an interesting year in terms of technology. We’ve seen tablets become an everyday part of living (though we’re still not sure of their purpose), 3D viewing advance dramatically, and augmented reality took off, thanks to the rise of compatible mobile applications. Alongside these tangible products, there has been much advancement in the backend of science and technology with talented scientists researching medicines, creating programs and extending their knowledge of the virtual world. Many of these projects were spearheaded by women, and I’d like to draw your attention to the top thirteen women who have impacted technology in 2010.
Conspicuously missing: Dr. Felisa Wolfe-Simon, the woman who led the NASA team that discovered the arsenic related bacteria.
For the past decade and a half I have been making all my content available for free (and never behind a paywall) as an ongoing practice of ephemeral publishing. This site is no exception.
