Maybe you've heard someone tell you our origin story...? About how this "Ohio Celebration of Women in Computing" started back in 2004? There were just a few of us talking about how we could get all of you together to share your experiences, so that you could see each other, find friends and mentors, to have the feeling of belonging to a community. That first discussion was just Bettina Bair, Ellen Walker, Bob Walker, Valerie Cross, and Tim Long eating burritos in my living room... but look how we've grown! That's how it goes with seeds. You plant them, care for them and they grow.
Maintaining the OCWiC website is a big job. There are many contributors and the content changes frequently. The OCWiC planning committee depends on Sami Glass to keep everything running smoothly. I interviewed Sami to find out more about her, and how got involved with OCWiC as a student volunteer.
BB: First of all, who are you?
SG: I am a senior Computer Science major at Kent State University.
BB: How did you hear about OCWiC?
