Google is sponsoring more than 50 scholarships for women to attend this year's Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing Conference. The deadline to submit an application is June 22, so don't procrastinate.


  • Grace Hopper

    Hi Rikki - Craig's "old man" here. Cleo told us about your blog so naturally we had to "visit". Craig's mom and I both worked for Hallmark as programmers (Fortran, COBOL, BAL - remember those?) for a combined total of 29 years! I used to have a letter from Grace Hopper thanking the Kansas City Users' Group for inviting her to speak at one of their meetings. She was quite a lady and was a fascinating speaker. As computer scientists we all have much to thank her for and women in particular must appreciate her computer skills as well as her ability to lead and manage. Have a great time next week. We're all having a great time although we're a bit sunburned (fair warning)...
