The Unfunniest Joke In Technology

That misogyny is an institutional reality in a field that prides itself on its forward-thinking worldview makes up only half of the absurdity highlighted by Titstare. The rest comes out in the tech industry’s impulse to “disrupt,” which has become so superficial a conceit that it accounts for undesirable inventions that innovate only by successfully developing a previously non-existing thing—though it’s not entirely clear that Titstare even does that much.

A recent study by the market research firm Parks Associates found that women’s technology habits outpace men’s; they buy more devices and are more likely to engage in digital activities such as uploading photos or downloading music.

From the article, "The Unfunniest Joke In Technology" by Betsy Morais.
