Day Before the Hopper Conference, Tucson, Arizona (GHC09)

I just arrived in Tucson, Arizona, where it is 101 degrees F and huge cactus grow everywhere. I am here for the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing (GHC09), the best technical women’s conference there is. My daughter Jessica arrives tomorrow. Both of us have published blog entries on where you can find us at Hopper:

Of course, whenever possible you will find us together. I love the Hopper Conference and will very much enjoy the talks and activities, but (as a Mom), I also love the opportunity to spend three and a half days with my wonderful lovely daughter who goes to college over 2,600 miles away from home.

Jessica’s work can be seen in her blog and (just published!) in the Carnegie Mellon Student Affairs Study Abroad “Student Perspectives”.
