I think, write, and create across boundaries.
My new book A People’s History of Computing in the United States (Harvard Univ. Press, 2018, hardcover, e-book, audio book) recently has been featured in The Nation, Public Books, and Nursing Clio. My essays have been published in Slate, Lady Science, the Smithsonian’s What It Means to Be American series, Information & Culture, IEEE Annals of the History of Computing, and elsewhere. I’ve shared my expertise at venues ranging from MIT, Cambridge, and NYU to the Computer History Museum and Google and consulted on projects including the pilot episode of Girls Code, and the documentaries The Queen of Code and The Birth of BASIC. All of my work embodies a lifetime of creativity in studying and practicing the arts and movement, including ballet, modern dance, yoga, theater, and opera (recent highlight: a workshop with Pilobolus). If you’d like me to write, consult, speak, or edit for you, drop me a line.
