NYT's "MEN invented the internet"—the truth about women in tech history
A Twitter conversation responding to four words in the New York Times that pissed a lot of people off. My related Boing Boing post is here: http://goo.gl/T2BVu
- LA proto-blogger Tony Pierce, whose mom was a programmer at the dawn of the Internet Age, felt like those first four words disrespected the contributions of pioneering women in technology.
- Tweets from many others whose mothers and grandmothers worked in tech during the internet's early days followed.
- There were stories of men who had formative experiences working with women in technology.
Did you find this story interesting? like or comment as 23 already did!

I thank them for it. I wanted give them the credit where it was due, so I wrote this article in response to this http://theoperationsguy.com/giving-credit-where-credit-due-how-i-fell-love-technology more2012-06-11T15:02:14.177Z
