Containing Multitudes Since 2004
Great new name for the series.Hopper is known for her pioneering work in computer programming. Here's a link to an article that includes an image showing her celebrated 1947 journal entry in which she documents, and preserves, a bug that prevented an early computer program from running correctly. The bug is a moth.http://www.cosmosandhistory.org/index.php/journal/article/view/103/206
thanks for renaming the series, and i'm excited for more
A woefully under-appreciated character. She created the first compiler for a computer language in the late-40's. To put that into context, every program on your computer has been compiled (into a binary executable).
