Emily Gaudette at Newsweek interviewed Naomi Wu –

Being attacked from all sides by male engineers has made Wu hesitant to demonstrate pride. But it hasn’t deterred her from working toward her dream. She wants to spread the maker mindset and promote a local tech culture unique to China.

For innovators like Wu, the future isn’t necessarily in coding, app development or artificial intelligence; it’s in the construction of hardware, wearable tech and tangible projects. She calls Shenzhen ”the Silicon Valley of hardware,” adding on her Patreon page that “chances are the phone or computer you are reading this on was made here—maybe even by a girl I grew up with.”

On Patreon, Naomi hit her goal last night, and is is now able to switch to part-time hours as a developer so she can spend more time building projects and shooting videos (we are a patreon).


If we’re really a community of makers, this is an opportunity to celebrate, elevate, and amplify each other’s work, we’re all given opportunities to do so. Phil & I made some suggestions to MAKE (Dale), we’re only one voice, we added ours.

We’ll be talking about this on our weekly show ASK AN ENGINEER, you can join us then or in Discord.
