“Notable Women in Computing” Kickstarter – Coming Soon!

Notable Women in Computing Poster_web24x36

Today, we submitted the “Notable Women in Computing Card Deck” to Kickstarter for review.  Professor Susan Rodger, my daughter Jessica Dickinson Goodman, and I hope that we get a quick Kickstarter approval and can announce the campaign for the second “Notable Women in Computing” card edition at Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing (GHC) this week.  Here is a video of my charming daughter telling all about the crowd sourcing project: Notable Women in Computing Card Deck – Kickstarter.  The image above is how the hard-working Jessica re-formatted the GHC14 poster for more-general Kickstarter distribution.

This project and card set is associated with the long-term “CRA-W and Anita Borg Institute Wikipedia Project – Writing Wikipedia Pages for Notable Women in Computing” project.  We encourage you to use this information to write or improve Wikipedia pages – especially creating new pages about remarkable women who have none! The detailed card listing is in my 1 October 2014 blog entry.  Duke University and Everwise are sponsors.
