Computer heroes I have known, and you should know

diciembre 8, 2022 - 11:30

Many people know about Steve Jobs and Bill Gates. While they and their companies created multi-billion dollar product lines, who were the heros that created the multi-trillion dollar computer industry and who shaped world history? This talk will present people of different sexes, ages and backgrounds who have done incredible things, many of whom I have been lucky enough to call my friend. There is not enough time in a 25 minute talk to introduce you to all of them, but I can rapidly discuss them and their contributions so you can read more later and use their inspiration and Free and Open Source Software, Hardware and Culture (FOSSHC) to become a hero too.
