Mary Fan has some mighty kind words to say about the frustrating time I had trying to reinvent the transistor in my bedroom on Mars under conditions of the utmost adversity (I'm talkin' about you, Rachel Zilber aka Ray). To get the full scoop, y'all are going to have to read Brave New Girls, a forthcoming anthology edited by Ms. Fan and Tina Closser, due out in June 2015 (that's in the
α timeline--it'll be June 2172 in the β timeline where Ray and I now live, but I won't confuse y'all any more than I have to.) All proceeds of this fine anthology of stories about girls excelling in science and technology will be donated quarterly to a scholarship fund for girls through the Society of Women Engineers.
Thumper, GIT out of my box of electronic parts! Bad kitty!
