2013 has been a great year! Revision Path was launched, and we’ve done over three dozen interviews with Black designers and developers from Portland to Johannesburg. There’s even more in store for 2014! To wrap things up for this year, we’ve pulled together our ten most popular interviews here on Revision Path based on page views, social sharing, and overall web traffic. Check them out after the jump and see if your favorite interview made the list!
Last month, we did our first survey to get an idea of who our audience is and how you like the site. But before going into that, let’s find out which lucky survey respondent won a $50 Amazon.com gift card! Congratulations to Gina H.! We’ll email you about claiming your prize. Now let’s delve into the the findings.
Starting in May, Revision Path will have new interviews every Monday! There’s some really great interviews I think you’ll enjoy, along with a couple of other goodies in store.
If you happen to be down in Austin this week and next week for the SXSW Interactive Festival, make sure to check out all the Blacks in Technology Programming at the Hilton Garden Inn.
I’m Maurice Cherry: web designer, sometime-y web developer, and founder of Revision Path.
In 2007, I wrote an article for Black Web 2.0 called “Where Are The Black Web Professionals?” It’s a little over five years later, and I’m not sure the mainstream tech and design community is any closer to answering that question.
The discussions about increasing diversity in the tech and design fields always start out well-meaning and then quickly devolve into baseless accusations, empty statements, and broken promises. It’s even gotten to the point where efforts to add diversity to the tech and design communities are being mocked and ridiculed by their peers with accusations of “tokenism” or “affirmative action”.
So where are the black web professionals? Revision Path is the answer to that question.
