I was recently invited to be one of 44 women in technology around the world who on August 11th, documented their day. The goal, organized by Sonja Bernhardt, was to illustrate women in every time zone with diverse technology careers so as to inspire young women to choose tech as a career path. “Visit the web site”:http://www.passionit.info where you can download PDF versions of the women in each region, and a formal book is being published as well. The date was chosen as it is the anniversary of the awarding of a “technology patent to Hedy Lamarr”:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hedy_Lamarr. Most of us know her as an actress, but she also helped invent technology that later was the basis of wifi!
