    Amazing Grace

    While looking for something else tonight, I stumbled upon this 60 Minutes interview (in two parts) with then Captain Grace Hopper. If you're in the computer business, you already know who she is. If not, you'll be better for the meeting. I especially like her comments that start at 2:36 in the second part.

    If you were blessed with having met her, you were changed by the experience and you likely gifted with a nanosecond

    She is one of my heroes and I hope she'll be one of yours.

    I feel very lucky at having met her when she visited Goddard Space Flight Center years ago, and still have a couple of her nanoseconds, AND a pack of her picoseconds.
