Thank you so much, Sarah! I really appreciate it. And I totally agree that our work as people who study computing has an ever greater relevance to broader conversations now. This would probably be a good time to share my recent op ed in the Guardian about how sexism casts a long shadow over our computing products today--particularly in the realm of "AI":

It also occurs to me that you are due some major congratulations for your Pioneer Award from the EFF--I'll make a separate post about that :)

While we are celebrating all these incredible contributions and prizes for work done by SIGCIS members, I thought I’d give a shout out to our own Mar Hicks, whose Programmed Inequality is the winner of this year’s SHOT Sally Hacker Prize. What an incredible statement as to the importance of the history of computer to a larger constituency. Congrats to Mar and to all winners! I’m in awe.
