Ada Lovelace Day post in honor of mizmoose [Mar. 24th, 2009|09:38 pm]

Esther "Moose" Filderman, also known as mizmoose on livejournal is the subject of this Ada Lovelace Day post. She is currently looking for a job and open to relocation.


Moose is a pioneer in the two computing causes that she holds dear:

1. OpenAFS

and

2. The League of Professional System Administrators - LOPSA


Moose got her start working with AFS and computer support in 1988 when she worked for Carnegie Mellon as a computer operator. There she was exposed to a file systems and system tool projects which were then called Vice, Virtue, and Venus. The Vice project was renamed to Andrew which was renamed to Andrew File Systems. For almost 20 years, she worked for Carnegie Mellon as a professional system administrator with expertise in AFS. Over the years she supported AFS as it grew from a University skunkworks, to an IBM product, and into a thriving open source file system. Today, Moose is an advocate for the use of OpenAFS. She has presented OpenAFS at SCALE and the Ohio Linuxfest. In addition, she keeps the peace on the OpenAFS mailing list and answers questions on OpenAFS administration and support issues.


Moose is also a founding member of The League of Professional System Administrators. She is a system administrator by choice and takes great pleasure training junior system administrators. Her areas of interest are ethics, documentation, training, and advocacy. She currently serves on the education committee and has been involved in coordinating many training days and workshops for system administrators and programmers. Moose also is involved in the leadership committee who vets perspective board members for LOPSA.


Moose is a very generous person. She is most generous knowledge sharing and her time. Her work is mostly behind the scenes and helping others shine. For this reason, she has been an unsung heroine in computing.


I met Moose in 1999 while interning at Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center. Even though she was not my manager, her leadership meant a lot to me. Without strong female role models early in my career such as Moose, I am not sure if I would have stayed with system administration as a profession. Her courage continues to be an inspiration to me today.

She doesn't mention that I'm a known Cereal Killer1 and that I support the right to arm bears2 and it's well known that I love small children, but I can't eat a whole one at one sitting.

The New York City Half Marathon is held on March 21 in New York, New York. If you do not think you will ever participate in the New York City marathon, this other crown jewel of the Big City is a great running option.
You will run the first half of the race in Times Square and down the city’s west side, along the Hudson River waterfront. Although it was held in the summer for its first four years, the New York City half marathon now takes advantage of cool March weather for fast running.

The Country Music Half Marathon in Nashville, Tennessee takes place on April 24. This race goes off at the same time as the Country Music Marathon, so you can take advantage of the crowd support for more than 35,000 race participants while getting an ultimate tour of music city.Thomas Sabo charms online shop
