15. I got to meet Admiral Hopper twice...

once while she was still in the Navy, and the second time when she was a spokesperson for Digital Equipment Corporation.

I treasure my Grace Hopper 'nanoseconds' (I have 2 of them), and when she was working for DEC she was also handing out 'picoseconds', which I keep with my nanoseconds (it's a packet of ground black pepper).

What an amazing woman.
