We can always use more voices talking about tech, making it more approachable, and helping folks feel welcome and involved. And when those publications are startups in their own right? All the better. That’s why I’m happy to see local community builder and developer Audrey Eschright taking to Indiegogo to underwrite the development of a new tech publication called The Recompiler.
The Recompiler will invite writers and artists who work and play with technology to share what they know: how do things work? who builds what? how much can we take apart, and what will it look like to rebuild our technology and make it better? We’ll do this through a quarterly print and online magazine. As a subscriber, you will be a part of our learning community.
Your contributions will pay for the writing, illustration, editing, and publishing costs of our first issue in Summer 2015. The Recompiler is especially focused on sharing the work of underrepresented groups, including women, people of color, people with disabilities, queer, genderqueer, and trans people. Your contribution supports these groups in sharing their technical work, knowledge, and skills.
There are only a few hours left in the campaign. So if the idea resonates with you and you haven’t had the chance to contribute, head on over to The Recompiler on Indiegogo.
