I am sending red plaid from a nightgown worn during graduate school (1980’s) where I was a student assistant staffing the Data Analysis Lab at Penn State. The cloth was warm and comfortable after spending many evenings with punch cards, SPSS, SAS and green bar printouts. My dissertation was done using a Commodore 64 for simulation at the Penn State library.

I’ve been interested in information sharing since early days. For graduation, I purchased an IBM PC XT and moved to Colorado to work in college computing lab there. Grateful for assistance that kept college affordable; committed to open access as a path forward for future femedtech students and others. Made friendships that continue to this day. Red plaid still brings back memories.
