I think Grace Hopper would have thought open-source development to be great.  She had a serious
populist streak that would have resonated.  

I'm not so certain she would admire a certain lack of discipline, but we might never know.
 She was not into complexification at all.

This reminds me that I did know her in person, to the extent she knew me by name and wrote
me a great at-a-boy letter once.  I promised someone, while at the ACM Turing Centennial event
to talk about that at a Seattle event and neither of us followed up about it.

Hi ComDev,

I wanted to let you know that I've volunteered to give a talk on getting
involved with open source at the ASF for the upcoming Grace Hopper
Conference (  I was excited to hear the
conference has an entire track on open source this year.  Hopefully we will
get some new people interested in the ASF!
