Current read: "Technically wrong" by Sara Wachter-Boettcher.

I've barely started and it already feels like a mandatory reading for anyone involved in tech.

@skiant ooh saw it on Twitter the other day, I’d be curious to read your opinion :)

@skiant ooooo this looks rather interesting. let us know what you learn?

@ArtistMarciaX @skiant I loved the audio book version of this! This taught me about how tech is being built and how tech affects us.

The book referenced this post as one of the many examples:

@skiant Just purchased, thank you for the recommendation!

@skiant I'm so grateful for the growing awareness (and the people helping spread that awareness) that just because something runs on a computer doesn't mean the thing is objective, fair, ethical, or right.

@skiant In the same vein, may I also recommend "Weapons of Math Destruction"?

I'm halfway through the book. It should not be mandatory reading for anyone working in tech, it should be mandatory reading, period.

@skiant Will be making this my next read I think... Looks very interesting!
