Admiral Grace Murray Hopper (ret'd) on Letterman

If you have never had the opportunity to see or hear Grace Hopper, here's your chance.

 

(Take it, believe me.)

 

(And now you know how to get, not only a nanosecond, but a bunch of picoseconds.)

Re: Admiral Grace Murray Hopper (ret'd) on Letterman

I had the joy of hearing Admiral Hopper twice in person during the 1980s. The first was at a huge conference with thousands in the audience. The second time, a year later, was in an Air Force classroom with about 60 students present. 

 

I received one of her nanoseconds each time. 

Sadly, the first one is lost forever.

The second, however, is framed and boxed with my other career artifacts, waiting for the appropriate I-Love-Me wall space in a future home.

 

Yes, by all means, watch her presentation. You may think she is speaking about computer history. You would be wrong; she spoke about true leadership.

Her type of down to earth honesty and sincerity have been lost on several generations.  Might as well add in work ethic, integrity, drive, compassion ... the list goes on.

Thank your for sharing 

 

as as with most of us who need to communicate technical concerns to non-technical people I am always on the lookout for ideas and other tips for helping me communicate effectively.

 

i can’t wait to get to work tomorrow and make some nanoseconds,

Oh, you may be even less worthy than you realize. My times with Grace Hopper were in Montgomery, Alabama, in 1984 & '85. 

In Spring, 1988, I was able to take the Deming Seminar with W. Edwards Deming on stage in Arlington VA imparting great wisdom for four days of accelerated learning. 

I was not worthy, but I was there, nonetheless, soaking it in each day.
