Good point, Bill, and it brings to mind Kathy Kleiman who has
done a lot of research on the women who were first to be
assigned as programmers on the ENIAC. She interviewed

documentary film on them. While I wouldn't want to speak
for Kathy, I'm sure she'd be happy to do a talk and a screening
of the film.
