By the way the phone she who must no be named is tweeting her TERF bullshit from runs on a processor architecture designed by a trans woman.

ARM (originally Acorn RISC Machine) is now the most produced (somewhere in the region of 150 billion CPUs) and arguably the most important CPU architecture in history and was designed by Sophie Wilson. Look her up!

By the by, she has a cameo as bar maid in the BBC ‘Micro Men’ dramatization of the early British home computer era. Worth a watch! (It’s on YouTube.)

@thomasfuchs No way! That is Sophie Wilson? That is inspired casting! 😀

@thomasfuchs Not sure why I care about a computer scientist's medical history. If you just like sharing trivia, check out Walter Carlos. Seminal electronic musician!

@vandys It's relevant when said computer scientist is a transgender woman, and her efforts are being used by someone else, to spout shit about other transgender people online.
