Il Johnson Space Center prende il nome da lei, vero? VERO?


you’ll also note that the computers she checked were also programmed by teams which were hugely majority female, as were all computers at the time. women laid the basis for modern computing, but were booted from the field when men decided computers didn’t qualify as “secretarial work” any more, even though it was women who were the experts bringing computers to that level.

My mom would put on John Denver. He had a song that went, “Life is so good / my life is so good these days / life is so good these days / my life is so good.” It made me unbelievably angry as a child. I don’t know, I was like… Excuse me, sir, where is your existential angst? I don’t buy it. You’re full of shit, John Denver. Rest in peace.
