Cindy Royal, a blogger at "Cindy's Take on Tech," writes an excellent post complaining about this recent cover of Wired Magazine, which is a headless shot of boobs. Royal complains that this cover is typical of Wired's attitude towards women. For many years, they have failed to highlight smart women in the tech industry. If a woman is shown on the cover, she is scantily dressed or a ditsy actress or a scantily dressed, ditsy actress.
Come to think of it, the last time that a woman was featured on your cover, because she was being featured in the magazine for an actual accomplishment, was way back in 1996 when it was Sherry Turkle, the academic and author. And, the only other time was in 1994, when musician/author Laurie Anderson was featured. Because since then, I guess no women have done anything notable in technology unless it had to do with their bodies? Really?
