Earlier this month I proposed using the tag WebJustice2.0 to designate something online as related to issues of inclusion in Web 2.0 – blog posts, events, images etc. related to the efforts to decrease the white male middle and upper class dominance of this emerging field. You can read about the WebJustice2.0 tag stream here.
This week the tag got some great use. You can always see the newest items syndicated at the end of my sidebar, and you can subscribe to the RSS feed yourself at WebJustice2.0 Feed.
- Tara Hunt on Mind Camp: Women in Technology
- Passionate Users at SXSW, from the blog Creating Passionate Users

- New Mythology for Female Nerds – Deborah Elizabeth Finn on the same Newitz talk described above.
- A Short Film About Community Informatics, not really a film but an interesting short article I tagged WebJustice2.0 to get some stuff about class and international issues into the stream.
