About 5 weeks ago Made with Code, launching today, is a lot of things: a new site where girls can try coding via Blockly-based projects; a directory of after-school programs, clubs and other resources; profiles of women and girls who are achieving their dreams through computer science; and a $50 million commitment to programs that are attacking the gender gap in CS. This is important.

Much discussion of data, privacy, security and the future of encryption, anonymization.  Worth reading the whole report.
