Transsexual Woman’s Successes

November 20, 2010

Ok, the “Transsexual Women’s Successes” page is really very cool.

And…happy making! After reading about those killed, it was really nice to read about those who have survived and thrived. I had no idea about Lynn Conway’s amazing story (she maintains this page and the TransMan successes page). I knew about, of course, “Introduction to VLSI Systems”, but I had no idea that she had transitioned, much less how IBM screwed her early in her career, much less the amazing work she did back then! Her comeback is truly inspiring (VLSI is a pretty damn good second act!). It’s hard to imagine her not getting the Turing Award.

So, remember those who were killed, but remember too those who live.
