Thurman Speaks About Women In Computing

I sent the following to Jane Larson--female business reporter for the Arizona Republic--near the end of 2005.

   I want the women of Arizona to learn about an upcoming event.

   Shirley M. Tilghman, who is on Google's board of directors,
   is the keynote speaker at next year's Grace Hopper Celebration
   of Women in Computing in San Diego.

   Other speakers include Sally Ride (first woman in space)
   and Helen Greiner (co-founder and chairman of iRobot Corp.).

   I've taken to using a morphed quote from Ray Kurzweil to 
   help describe out future... Kurzweil says "biotech, nanotech,
   and, ultimately, robotics."  I always add "space" to his quote.
   Our future is "biotech, nanotech, robotics, and space."

   Tilghman--moleculor biologist (biotech)
   Greiner--robotics
   Ride--space

   Tilghman is connected to Google... we will eventually 
   see biogoogle, nanogoogle, nanobiogoogle.

   Next year's Grace Hopper Celebration is going 
   to offer all of us an opportunity to learn about 
   life in the 21st century and beyond.
