Limor “Ladyada” Fried has juggled many labels throughout her life.
Hacker. Student. MIT engineer. Founder. Leader. Each new title or accolade served as an acknowledgement of Fried’s success. Some career benchmarks include Fried becoming the first female engineer to grace the cover of WIRED or earning the title of “Entrepreneur of the Year” in 2012 fromEntrepreneur magazine.
But these national honors don’t represent the name that continues to inspire her to keep creating, inventing and experimenting. Above all, she’s a maker—a member of a DIY subculture of engineering-oriented pursuits including 3-D printing, electronics and robotics.
