I was going to post the link to this article yesterday, but I felt it wasn't entirely appropriate in light of the Virginia Tech shooting tragedy.
Lenore Blum, one of the Carnegie Mellon University professors profiled in the article, is a classy lady. I had the honor of working with her for a semester or so, as I was the assistant to the Women in Computer Science Advisory Committee. Little-known fact about me: I started my college career as a computer science major at Carnegie Mellon, and even though I eventually switched to creative writing, I still have a large fondness for the department. It's filled with brilliant professors, excellent advisors (particularly Mark Stehlik, who was like a surrogate father to me during some hard times, and Jim Roberts, who alas, no longer advises), and students who really care about computer science. Hell, I still care about computer science, and find it largely fascinating.
So I find it incredibly heartening that there's still an active effort to recruit women into computer science programs across the nation. I wasn't quite in on the ground floor of the effort, but I'm glad to have been even a tiny part of the process. =)
