On the 70th Anniversary of the Execution of Sophie Scholl, 22 February 1943 - Sophie Scholl was a German woman executed by the Nazis for distributing anti-Nazi pamphlets.

She invented the first compiler, which is a program that translates a computer language like Java or C++ into machine code, called assembly, that can be read by a processor. Every single program you use, every OS and server, was made possible by Grace's first compiler.

You know what? If you are reading this, thank that women^. Her name is Grace Hopper, and she is one of the most under appreciated computer scientists ever. You think Gates and Jobs were cool? THIS WOMEN WORKED ON COMPUTERS WHEN THEY TOOK UP ROOMS. ROOMS I TELL YOU, ROOMS! She invented the first compiler, which is a program that translates a computer language like Java or C++ into machine code, called assembly, that can be read by a processor. Without it we would still be writing everything in raw assembly, which takes much longer and is much less human-readable. Every single program you use, every operating system and server, was made possible by her first compiler. She made it when no one thought it was possible. The pervading thought at the time was that computers could only use assembly and therefore only do basic arithmetic, but she proved them wrong. Oh, and she worked on some of the first super computers for the Navy. This women is one of my heroes. Also, she has a destroyer named after her, and a super computer, called the Cray XE6 “Hopper”.

A friend of mine who is enrolled in a black history class at one of local colleges told me of how much the curriculum of that class as presented by her professor, shows a great deal of hate and prejudice against white people. I wonder how any of that racist behavior has anything to do with what Dr. Martin Luther King preached!?
