Gala Academia

The Computer History Museum in Mountainview has a Fellows program and I got to attend the Gala event where the Fellows for 2015 were awarded/recognized. The new fellows were

  • Evelyn Berezin, for her early work in computer design and a lifetime of entrepreneurial activity.
  • Charles Bachman, for his early work on developing database management systems.
  • Bjarne Stroustrup, for his invention of the C++ programming language.
The event was all gala, and I got to hear about interesting themes and early days. Bjorne quipped that the Museum should have more exhibits on Software, not just cool gadgets and hardware. Indeed.
