Google has long promised to “do no evil”. They’ve done better than that.“Google announced a $50 million initiative to teach young girls how to code, Google has promised to do all it can to recruit more women into Silicon Valley. Along with Chelsea Clinton, Girls Inc., Girl Scouts of the USA, Mindy Kaling, MIT Media Lab, National Center for Women & Information Technology, SevenTeen, TechCrunch and more, Google is launching Made with Code, an initiative to inspire girls to code” They are doing good by promoting computer programming for young women, really young women, actually girls. They have to because girls have been getting tracked away from computer science earlier than ever. That could be part of the success of IT in the world, bringing more information to everyone everywhere. Google found it had to get the message across earlier if it wanted to have more women in its own workforce. Good for Google.

My MissionMy observations and opinions about IT are based on 40 years of use in science and technology and lately, in education. I like IT that is fast, cost-effective and reliable. My first use of GNU/Linux in 2001 was so remarkably better than what I had been using, I feel it is important work to share GNU/Linux with the world. Now that I'm retired I still use GNU/Linux on every computer in my home except the smartphones which run Android/Linux.
Lately, I've been giving lots of thought to the world I inherited and which I will leave to my descendants. I'm planting grass, trees, flowers and vegetables in my large lot and I've ordered a Solo EV. I plan to charge my Solo by means of a tracking solar array. Life is good if you have a purpose. I do.
