- Grace Hopper
Physics and Art
With extensive background in physics and math, I have deep appreciation for the significance of Grace Hopper’s light-nanosecond pin. The person who designed the interesting labyrinth must be a skilled graphic artist. I am pleased to see there are two stick pins on the back of the pin, which will fit nicely into the pseudo-buttonholes on the lapels of my suit coats. I plan to wear this pin often; it will be interesting to hear reactions from other people. I am very pleased with this gift from my daughter Kathy.
Great causes and a nice reminder of when I had dinner with Admiral Hopper in the '80s
The pins are great and my daughter really appreciated getting it as a gift.
This was a gift to someone. She was most pleased.
Love my Grace Hopper pin!
I saw her once when I was in high school, and she had a length of wire or cord and that she used to demonstrate the nanosecond. Now I can use my pin to tell others and encourage kids to be interested in science and technology
I highly recommend the Grace Hopper Nanosecond pin!
The pins are really just as shown and I’m thrilled with the concept of being able to give friends this pin as it has so much meaning to me and those who will receive the pins.
Dissent jewelry as a metaphorical gift
I’m giving the R Franklind DNA, Grace Hopper light scale and Ada Lovelace punchcards to 13 y/o grand daughter as a symbol of women in science. Hopefully it will reinforce confidence in the truth at a notoriously vulnerable age, especiously in the current climate of magical thinking.
The pin was purchased because it was an perfect gift for someone that works with women and girls,
Lovely pin. Quick delivery. Feels like good quality and durability. Loved the insert with all of the historical information.
Love my Grace Hopper pin. What’s not to love? Chartres labyrinth and Grace Hopper spoke at my GW law school graduation 40 years ago! I remember her saying the computer was the size of a large room.
Dissent Pins are always clever and meticulously crafted. I have several, and they are ALL my favorites. Really!
labyrinth, nanosecond. golden ratio, Phi, mind-body evolution.
The pin is a symbol of an infinite amount of knowledge waiting to be discovered.. The symbolic meaning of the labyrinth can be traced back thousands of years. Computer science has sped up the growth of knowledge. What we can now do in a nanosecond was once intuitive but has taken very slow, laborious and incremental steps into acceptance. YET throughout all evolution the mathematical sequence of the golden ratio, Phi, the sequence in the Chartres labyrinth, can be found. The pin is a symbol that we are, or have, moved to the Matrix. We are going down a rabbit hole far deeper in than Alice. The more I know, the more I know I do not know, and yet I know we can never know it all.
I love my dissent pin...I wish I'd known about Dr. Hopper when I was in college! I also have RBG collar earrings...all help me remember that Strong Women make a difference!
Proud to wear it!
This pin is well done and worthy of its namesake.
My new good-luck charm and conversation piece
I recently started a job doing software engineering for an aerospace/defense company that works with the Navy. I mentioned the famous story about Admiral Grace Hopper and "the bug" to a coworker when hunting for coding bugs myself, and was surprised to learn that they didn't know who she was. So I ordered the Grace Hopper Nanosecond Pin to keep at my desk, and I proudly tell her story to everyone who asks me what it means. I think "Amazing Grace" is an excellent role model, and having this symbol of her philosophy is inspiring and encouraging for me every day!
Great quality product
Received my Grace Hopper nanosecond pins quickly. The quality was pleasantly surprising. Double pin backs keep it on securely and the enamel was in perfect shape. I have been wearing it on my work lanyard for a month and it looks as good as the day it arrived.
Fitting gift for a signal processing female engineer!
The pin is well made and a lovely tribute to a brilliant woman. My daughter in law loved it. She's an engineer and does not take for granted the path that has been laid down by pioneering women in typically men's fields. Even as she forges her own path she is grateful for those who went before..
