Captain Marvel and the rise of women in geek culture

Women should be encouraged to dream big to pursue careers that once were less available. The rise of the female geek means their time is now – a time to wear your geek flag on your sleeve.

Experience VS Connection Part 3: Community

Sean Parker, the co-founding president of Facebook, is quoted in an interview with Axios:
