Call for Contributors for Issue 12: Machines & Things

For our third issue of 2018, we’ll be talking about machines and things! We’re looking at the technology that brings us together with our fellow humans. Our guest editor for this issue will be Stephanie Morillo.

Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  • Security and the internet of things (IoT)
  • Surveillance and smart devices
  • The present, and future, of body modification with microchips, intrauterine devices (IUDs), and other devices
  • Humanlike AI (e.g. Google Assistant)
  • How the meaning of what a “machine” is has changed over time

We look for ideas that will be effective at an advanced beginner to intermediate level of technical knowledge, and that are grounded in the author’s personal experiences. We’re especially interested in work from people who are part of under-represented groups in technology. Contributors are paid.

Find the details and submit your ideas at Submissions are open through September 4.
