Empowering Women Through Technology
Welcome to the Web’s premiere technology resource for women!
Did you know women outnumber men in the United States 51% to 49%? Women are more likely to shop online than men and more likely do so using a smart phone or tablet. Women are more active on social media and more likely to frequent classes or workshops when learning about a new device. And yet, the technology industry is consistently dominated by men. You would think the leaders of such technology giants like Apple and Google would be trying to find new ways to corner this untapped market. (And I don’t mean the lame attempts to entice female tech shoppers by making the devices pink. Although, I’m secretly a sucker for this…).
The time is now. We are about to enter a digital renaissance and I see women poised to make a huge impact. I want all the cool toys Jane Jetson had at her disposal and I want them now. ( Seriously, I’d kill for that morning mask thingy she had.) I want titans of industry asking me what I’d like to see built instead of adapting or modifying an existing product to work better for me. Our children need to see more women developing, coding, and running startup nano-businesses so these female stereotypes won’t be passed down.
And that’s why I built this site.
This is a safe place dedicated to women who feel insecure or overwhelmed by their devices and need support. If you’re looking for tips and tricks or a little hand holding, this is the site for you. If you’re frustrated by our technology companies lack of female influence and want to know more, this is the site for you. If you are a developer or coder and want to offer us some ideas or just blow off some steam, this is the site for you. And if you’re a company looking for a way to reach a key demographic that is often overlooked for your upcoming product release, this is definitely the site for you.
The blonde byte is here to act as a conduit between women and technology and will offer support via blog posts, classroom training or personal training. Apple devices are my area of expertise but that doesn’t mean I won’t be able to support other devices. I have partnered with a consulting group, Creative Thinking Group’s the TechYoda, who are Apple Consultants who also deal with Windows support. So, questions about any computers, tablets and smart phones are greatly encouraged, as are suggestions of topics you would like to see covered.
If I don’t know the answer, I’ll find someone who does. And if the technology Gods weren’t listening to us before, they will be soon.
Welcome to the revolution.
