It is a day to commemorate women in technology. For me it is natural to mention colleagues that work at and with the interface between technical systems and social processes:
- Jill herself, an ideal guide to the world of gaming and game research
- Jannicke Røgler from Buskerud County Library, a forceful promoter of blogs – and all other 2.0 tools - in the library environment
- Vibeke Bjarnø and Leikny Øgrim – e-learning pioneers and practitioners at Oslo University College
- Ingunn Kjøl Wiig – teacher, blogger and founder of the pedagogical network Bruk & Del 09 [Use & Share 09]
They do not work at the cutting edge of technology as such, but at the cutting edge of socio-technical change – where we struggle to master tools and overcome inertia – and worse – at the same time.
