Resource: “Technology Stories” on the SHOT Website

The Society for the History of Technology (SHOT) has introduced a blog on its website called "Technology Stories." Edited by Suzanne Moon and Gerardo Con Diaz, the site aims to
engage readers with the usable past—stories that help us make sense of contemporary technological challenges and aspirations. Technology’s Stories is a place for thinkers to share new insights on the integration of technology with our environments and our social, political, and economic lives.
Published several times a year, "issues" feature three to four essays each; after three years, the site now contains many "Technology Stories," ranging from John K. Brown's 2014 discussion of the Eads Bridge and the analytic use of the "constrained counterfactual" to Marie Hicks's recent post on ingrained gender discrimination in the computing industry, "A Feature, Not a Bug."
    Readers can find the full index to the site's essays here.
