Female Engineer Featured on the Cover of Wired for the First Time

Wired has a rather infamous track record when it comes to putting women on the cover of their magazine — and it didn’t help much that last year, Wired put a pair of breasts on the cover. (Because they illustrated an article on tissue engineering, of course.)

So it’s refreshing to see that for the April 2011 issue of Wired, a woman with technical skills gets prominent cover placement. Adafruit Industries’ Limor Fried, who was prominent last year in raising the call for an open Kinect driver that arguably helped launch the Kinect hack revolution, is the first female engineer to make the cover of Wired.
