Rantings and tirades of a frustrated economist.
Whenever I hear women whine about how "there isn't enough being done to help women in math" - I just tell them about Sophie Germain.Sophie Germain - a mathematical genius. She studied math at a time when women weren't even allowed in school. But she was so determined to get her work noticed, she wrote to Gauss - the most eminent mathematician of his time - under a male pseudonym in order to get him to read her stuff. Her work was SO good, when Gauss found out she was a woman, he DEMANDED that she receive mathematical instruction. And she did.
They said, "Cool, let's learn COBOL."At least, that's what they said when they weren't busy inventing frequency-hopping spread-spectrum communications instead.
Gotta love The Greatest Generation. Kicking such ass in a massive World War. Something went wrong down the line.
With the MSM publishing a deluge of female superiority articles do you really need to add to the gynocentric view, Aaron?
Actually, the were saying "Let's invent COBOL"Feminism has destroyed women, not improved them. Admiral Hopper was too busy doing things to whine about how she was being treated.
"With the MSM publishing a deluge of female superiority articles do you really need to add to the gynocentric view, Aaron?"It is kinda weird -- I hear far, far, far more about what's-her-name and that COBOL abomination than I do about, say, Eckert, Mauchly, von Neumann, McCarthy or Ritchie -- to name just 5.Kinda funny, innit?
