A wonderful story about how a record store clerk built a career in tech. I bet you have someone in mind that could be just as successful given a little encouragement...ask yourself when it might be time to pay it forward ...

thank you +Charlie Kravetz for reminding me that there was just such a time for me long,
long ago

There is a wonderful Etruscan Museum in Rome that few people know about/visit. It's about 1 mile west of the Spanish Steps and Mrs Babbington's Tea House. A must-see if you are interested in ancient history.

Thank you +Joanne Manaster . I agree.
 
The STEM Crisis Is a Myth; The real shortfall is actual STEM knowledge in society. 

A very interesting article looking at the factors that are in play in push-pull of hiring and training of STEM workers. Worth reading in its entirety.

Thanks +Charlie Kravetz. Let's remind everyone that accessibility is important for all of us to have.
 
I'm a blind Linux user. There are 360 million vision impaired people in the world. The majority of vision impared people don't have access to a computer due to the expensive proprietary screen reading software that runs on Windows. I'm running an indiegogo campaign to help develop the Orca screen reader that runs on Linux and make it 10 times better than the proprietary screen reader. This day and age we live in there is no reason why people with vision impairments can't access a computer.  Lets use the power of open source to make a difference. please help with this campaing and spread the word about it. Like and share this post and please visit the campaign.

Thanks +Philippe Vaccaro Good parody.
 
Last week, as the U.S. signaled it may launch limited strikes against Syria as punishment for allegedly using chemical weapons, I posted an explainer titled “9 questions about Syria you were too embarrassed to ask.”
On Sunday, novelist Teju Cole, whom I’ve had the privilege of editing, parodied it on Twitter. His composition, which we might call “9 questions about Britain you were too embarrassed to ask,” is posted below. Following it is a brief Q&A I did over e-mail with Cole, who was writing from Australia.

How Big is the Solar System?

I'm back from an epic vacation to #pax2013, and so it's time for work. And by work, I mean entertaining space videos. Here's the latest one:

Story
Tagline
Writer, Technology Consultant, Speaker -- Please support the charity of your choice.
Introduction
Interested in: increasing and supporting women in STEM, technology and charities.  Complex problem solving is fun - especially involving disparate technologies!
 
When not reading (science/techo-spy fiction), I study foreign and programming languages.
 
I live in a multiverse  and enjoy learning more about biology, genetics, physics and exploring neuroscience--particularly  consciousness. Anthropology, sociology, pyschology are interesting also.  I am fascinated with ancient near/mid eastern history (1000-700 AD) & archaeology. .
 
Free time? I travel--usually not tourist areas, listen to ancient music and look at art-especially textiles/tiles. Enjoy playing harp, piano and violin.
 
I collect ancient Japanese and Aramaic sayings.
 
I write about everything, love writing fiction and enjoy exploring the connection between those who have gone before and those who come after.
Bragging rights
When I graduated--computer science--I was the only woman in my class. My first 'internet' was uucp and my computer an Altos 8086, of course one had to load the UNIX kernal first. :)
