‘DigiGirlz try out HoloLens at developer education session’


Here, teenaged girls get a developer-track introduction to Microsoft’s augmented reality platform. Afterwards, several participants explain how the experience makes them determined to pursue a career in tech.

This is inspiring stuff; it’s hard to imagine anyone objecting to the “DigiGirlz” program that made this possible. …Until you read the YouTube comments, that is.[1] Many of the top-voted remarks repeat the same question: “’DigiGirlz?! What about ‘DigiBoyz’?”

(The answer, of course, is that we’ve had “DigiBoyz” for decades. It’s called “the tech industry.”)
