Turn up the music!!

Hey lady techs, get on the dance floor!!! As summer quickly approaches us, many of us will be at backyard BBQ’s, pool parties,  and outdoor parties jamming to songs from the past to the current hits heard right now.

Back in the early 2000’s, Napster was one of the first online streaming services founded by Sean Parker, co-founder of Facebook, along with two other individuals before it was shut down due to complaints from the recording industry for lack of royalties received for music downloads. Since Napster debuted online streaming services,  there have been many alternatives to listen to music besides radio and CD disks which are slowly becoming obselete. For example,  XM Sirius radio station was co-founded by Martine Rothblatt, a Transgender woman, that has been one of the first satellite broadcasted radio stations in existence for over 20 yrs. As a former consumer of Sirius XM, I enjoyed the variety of music choices available from past to present as well as the reasonable payment plan and customer service.

Now, I enjoy listening to music on my phone through the Milk music app as well as downloading music to  my phone that I can listen to through Bluetooth hands free in my car. Carry on in a musical fashion .

Daddy’s home

 

 

 

 

Two heads are better than one. This is a special notation for Father’s Day.Many of us would not be in existence without fathers.  Even though some men get a bad rap for lack of support or guidance, there are some men who have been influential to my career journey in technology as well as my other pursuits. I can say that I am fortunate to have my dad, brother, boyfriend and other male figures in my family who have been constant positive figures who provides love, discipline, logic, and focus along with sarcasm in  loving fashion.

Also, I have been guided on computer technology  and class projects by a few male advisors in college and I personally want to thank them for their knowledge and support as an MIS student at Rowan University . Even though many of us as women are breaking glass ceilings in their careers, many of us would not have progressed far in our careers without a male perspective in spite of the sexism we constantly face. Ladies, how has a man’s influence affected your tech career as well as personal life?
