I'm Becky Stewart

I'm a creative technologist and founding member of Anti-Alias Labs where we engineer solutions to creative problems, often working with artists, designers, and musicians. I'm also a co-founder of Codasign, a creative technology education company that runs workshop teaching kids and adults how to use technology to develop creative projects.

From 2006 to 2011, I was a researcher at C4DM, the Centre for Digital Music within the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science at Queen Mary, University of London.

I grew up in Kalamazoo, Michigan in the US and currently live in London in the UK.

Becky

...is short for Rebecca. I have learned that it is not always obvious, depending on your cultural background. I am happy to be addressed as either Becky or Rebecca. My academic work is published under my full name.

theleadingzero

...is a gender theory and math pun.

This domain name was inspired by Sadie Plant's book Zeros + Ones: Digital Women and the New Technoculture. In her book, Plant explores parallels between being female, being feminine, the history of computing, the history of weaving, science fiction literature and a multitude of other topics. I found inspiration for the domain name from the chapter Holes.
