Oh, there were other angles

Three views of Margaret Hamilton standing next to the pile of software code written by the MIT team for Apollo, 1969

@cypnk After watching some episodes of Curiousmarc, I now realise that that stack is not a single version of the flight software. Instead, each book is one version.

@cypnk There's something really dark about this though... The one with her beside the stack has _one more volume_ on it. Which implies they had her stand behind the stack first .. until, with that last volume, it was too tall to hide her.

@feonixrift This photo is many decades old and there are innumerable things happening which we cannot conceivably guess at the time it was taken. Eye of the beholder etc...

@cypnk
Same angle, different position 😏

@RyuKurisu There's one extra volume on the first one though

@cypnk
Ok so far. But where are the saxons?

@cypnk
spooky coincidence when I just opened mastodon, this is a screenshot of the page I am working on in the window behind,

ActivityPub Conference 2020.

@sl007 That's indeed quite the coincidence!

@cypnk margaret hamilton, full-stack developer

@cypnk is that Ada, with the source code to her compiler?

@bambinod Close, but it’s Margaret Hamilton

@cypnk Every time I see those photos I find myself hoping Ms. Hamliton didn't have to carry all of that on her own. Hopefully she at least had a handtruck.
