Damn this is bad. About why there are absurdly more men than women in tech.

I hope we can together influence people to stop thinking about tech as a male thing. More diversity, in gender and other aspects, is a good thing for all of us.

Also important to mention that just because you feel you can personally tell the difference between synthetic & authentic media, it doesn’t mean we’re good to go. It matters what the general public believes. Altered media has real world safety, political etc impact for everyone.
