Ladyada on the #firesidehangout with the President. She suggested:
- Education – National effort to make learning a computer programming language a requirement for high schoolers.
- Patent reform – Stopping patent trolls, specifically software patents and limiting software patents to 5 years.
- For the “get to know the prez question” She asked if the President’s daughters have thought about a career in science / engineering.
Thank you everyone for the support and kind words for our Ladyada. We’re all exhausted here and are going to take the night off, what a fantastic Valentine’s day 🙂 Once the video is posted we’ll post it up here and on the Adafruit Industries blog. It should be on the Whitehouse YouTube video page shortly.
