If you are just a computer user, you may not know that you have the women of invention to thank for the tool you are using today. Incredible, you say… and yes, it’s totally incredible! Not everyone will agree with me, but here’s the facts.
Women, you have no doubt heard of in passing, have played a huge part that pioneered the way to the technology we have today, in so many ways. Let’s take some examples. I just choose a few that stood out among the many.
Hedy Lamarr was a movie star in the MGM days, yet a brilliant mathematician. She co-invented a technique for technology hopping that currently serves as the basis for Bluetooth and WiFi. Incredible!
Ada Lovelace was a mathematician in the 1840’s who is credited in writing the first computer program, decades before the computer was invented. Incredible!
Alexander Graham Bell, may have been the inventor of the telephone and a single line, but Dr. Ema Hoover, who is also a mathematician, she invented the computerized telephone switching methods and revolutionized the modern communication.
As you use your modern computer today and talk on a phone with multi-functions and ability to switch calls… I’d like you to remember that women, have played such a big roll in our history of technology, but we still have to work harder and work longer for the recognition.
As a business woman, thankfully, I have many mentors to look up to. I know that my hard work and efforts to help other women in business is a gift. I may not be a famous person for doing what i do, but hopefully I’ll be remembered in kind.
Thank a woman in business today.
