Jeri Ellsworth: tech heroine

Jeri Ellsworth

Originally uploaded by Jason "Textfiles" Scott

At the Forsk we talked a bit about our women tech heroes. Jeri Ellsworth, see picture, is clearly in my pantheon of heroes.

Taught herself everything. Had a DIY racecar career. Then she got into custom-built electronics, and designing chips. Well, she got very good at it. She built a simulated Commodore 64. And tells her lifestory in this longer video talk.

Here’s a nice photo gallery of Jeri’s home etching setup.

The Fatman and Circuit Girl is her video podcast. Slogan: Too smart to be cool, too cool to be a nerd. Welcome scientists!

Do you have women heroes in technology or science, give me a tip in the comments section.
