The inception of the project began as a problem solving exercise on digital memorials between Aliza Sherman and Tery Spataro. As the conceptualization progressed, both recognized an issue with lack of historical acknowledgement and recognition of women who were responsible for creating purpose and usage of the internet. The solution was a process to leveraging the strength in technology to build a viable means for the stories of those women involved in the purpose and usage of the Internet and digital. Realizing the project needed format for story telling, Aliza brought Jen Myronuk into our discussions. Jen’s experience in documenting stories brings to the project a structure and organization to information and story telling.
