Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better

Embedded in all the comments about Danika McKellar, I encountered a recommendation from Ron Avitzur over at A Programmer's Apology to read this article. It's written by a woman actively engaged in a mathematics career and is addressed to a young girl in a mostly male programming class. It is a brilliant letter and I would reproduce it in its entirety if I weren't worried about copyright ethics. Definitely check it out.

Wow, what an awesome letter. I'd like to make that required reading. I think I will post it as large as possible on my hall bulletin board. Thanks for pointing it out.

Thanks for posting that link. It should be required reading... for boys too.
