I'll need to re read those sections because I found the ideas fascinating but featuring too many Sanskrit terms that were defined once before leaving the reader to remember them on later reference Define your variables in scope please Also for such a good critiue of machobro tech culture and lack of women in tech in the US I was surprised how few wom
