I approve...sort of. [Feb. 18th, 2010|12:37 am]

I like the 2010 Grace Hopper Celebration poster because it is recognizably an illustration of Midtown Atlanta, and, moreover, because it actually has Grace Hopper on it. Also because it doesn't scream "Breasts! Tiny waists! Vague, ineffectual hand gestures!" like the 2008 one did.

Of course, for a few years now they've been putting the white chick in the middle and making her the tallest. Okay, so, speaking as the white chick, I usually am the tallest. But that doesn't mean I should always get to type.

I remember Christy complaining about that 2008 one, but I just now noticed that the one on the left is... summoning the water with her ineffectual hand gesture. She's a Planeteer!

(You can be one too! Cause saving our planet is the thing to do! etc etc.)

I do approve the actual inclusion of Adm. Grace Hopper! That's actually quite awesome.

Actually, the gestures on the left and in the middle don't bother me so much, because at least they're actually doing something. The one on the right, though, is just sort of vaguely holding her hand in the air. And her hand appears to be a...light source? Either that, or she's a vampire, because it sure ain't casting a shadow.
