Cool Code, Bro: Brogrammers, Geek Anxiety and the New Tech Elite
In late-2013 I was lucky to be commissioned by king of Internet culture exploration Tim Hwang to investigate the stereotypical brogrammer—literally jock-ish computer programmers.
The eight-month project turned into an longread ebook we put out in Amazon’s Kindle Store as a Kindle Select exclusive.
Luckily touched on topics more interesting than frat guys and their startups.
The book talks a lot about nascent discussions around feminism and diversity in technology and education as well as the ethics of product creation.
I won’t give it all away, even though much of the change we described was borne out in later events.
