Friday fun: Grace Hopper on Late Night

Grace Hopper was one of the pioneers in the field of computer science, and as this clip from Late Night with David Letterman shows, she was a great wit too:

Grace Hopper retired from the US Navy with the rank of Rear Admiral, and in the USS Hopper (DDG-70) is named after her. Check out the links below if you want to learn more about Grace Hopper and remember the famous quote often attributed to her: "It's easier to ask for forgiveness than it is to get permission".
Thanks to for posting the clip..

Have a great weekend ~ Jim
