Women in our hacker culture mural
Jump to navigation Jump to search
The wall behind the fabrication area (at the south west corner of the space), was recently primer'd during the REFRESH. Now that we have all this fresh wall on which to have an art, we'd like to add new murals to it to accompany the nearby Tesla mural.
It was suggested that a mural of Margaret Hamilton be painted on the wall celebrating her contribution to the Apollo program. Upon this suggestion some folk threw in the idea that we should have multiple people immortalized on the wall, instead turning it from a mural of one into a dedicated mural to women in the history of computing.
Have a suggestion as to who we should put on the wall? Add it to the list! Include a link so that people can learn about their contributions.
- Margaret Hamilton
- Ada Lovelace
- Grace Hopper
- Lynn Conway
- Kay McNulty
- Grete Hermann(bonus points for disproving Von Neumann? :P)
