Honoring Women in Tech
With apologies to Annie Lennox and Aretha Franklin, when it comes to web access, sisters are doing it for themselves.
In honor of the 50th anniversary of the first message sent via ARPANET, a forerunner to the modern Internet, a recent edition of Popular Mechanics highlighted 11 notable women in computer science.
Among the 11 spotlighted by the magazine are six Internet Hall of Fame inductees: Yvonne-Marie Andres, Elise Gerich, Elizabeth Feinler, Ida Holz, Anne-Marie Eklund Lowinder and Jean Armour Polly.
As the publication notes, these women "deserve recognition for their groundbreaking contributions," as they have "helped shape the way we connect with the world around us."
