Marie Hicks wrote Programmed Inequality about sexism in computing in England which led to the downfall of the UK’s computer industry. She signed it “Thanks for supporting the humanities,” because, like me, she believes Humanities is integral to a well-rounded life.
One of the delightful things about working at Computer History Museum is the opportunity to meet authors and get signed books. This is Leslie Berlin’s Troublemakers
I’ve read Aslan’s Zealot twice now and decided it was time to read some of his other work.
Leslie Berlin spoke about Troublemakers one evening at work. Before she was done, I’d already decided to track down The Man Behind the Microchip. (It’s time I knew something about Robert Noyce besides there’s a conference room at work named after him.)
I saw the exhibit at the De Young Museum in June 2017 and waited 6 months before I could get the catalogue. Can’t wait to dig in!
