We were happy to see Fast Company’s list of the Most Influential Women in Technology, which featured many techie females we love (like Limor Fried of Adafruit Industries). Some of those “influential women” seemed to be using the internet to enhance a business model, which in our humble opinion doesn’t really count as being “in the field of technology.” That’s why were were pleased to see this list of 100 Women in New Media published by Media Art Historian Nina Wenhart. For the 100th Anniversary of International Women’s Day (which was March 8th, who knew) she posted the names and some websites for 100 female artists working with new media and technology. Take a minute to check them out – it’s inspiring to see page after page of women doing cool work with technology.
