Black Enterprise: Top African Americans in Technology Series

13Mar09

logoDuring Black History month, Black Enterprise wrote a short series on the top African-Americans in Technology, which ties in nicely with the ‘Masters of Innovation’ theme in their March 2009 issue. I applaud Black Enterprise for continuing to shine the light on another untold part of our history past and present. The series begins with the gifted Donya Douglas, who is an Instrument Systems Branch executive at NASA. To conclude the short series, articles were written on Ajamu Wesley, Senior Software Architect at IBM and Reginald Smith, Molecular Biologist at General Electric.

I picked up the March 2009 issue of Black Enterprise and thought the ‘Masters of Innovation’ article was well written. Next week I will upload a scanned pdf copy of the entire article. I was already aware of many of the men and women in the article. One person in particular is Gregory Evans who is the founder of LIGATT Security and the Technology Crimes Institute. When I first got into Information Security about two years ago, I remember viewing a PBS documentary called ‘Cyber War!’ and watching Gregory Evans in one segment discussing the process hackers go through to crack wi-fi passwords. Gregory was passionate and extremely knowledgeable. Being new in the area of Information Security, it felt great to see another African-American already thriving in the field.
