What role do we want technology to have? Need-driven or profit-driven?

This exhibition organized by ViolaVirus in cooperation with the Library of Eindhoven is part of the larger Manifestations - Will the Future Design Us? exhibition at the Veemgebouw, Eindhoven.

Can we have internet and technology more feminine, more human, more social and more sweet?

More than 80% of IT employees is male, according to Eurostat, the statistical office of the European Union.
What are the consequences of this on development, design and application of technology?

A study of Aaltojärv (2009) shows tech-products designed by women are more user friendly, nicer, more quiet and smaller.
ViolaVirus researched the needs of women on the area of tech, collecting works where the influence of female aspects are more visible. Diversity as a key to success.

Let's democratize technology!
