Shared on July 2, 2019

This has been a summer of mostly dull, often depressing technology news, and the Women’s World Cup has been a delight. Since I can put whatever I want on this site, I thought this essay was worth a read if you’ve been paying any attention to the USWNT, Megan Rapinoe, or just want a fun read.

So here I am.
