the aftermath of my “so you wanna be a Web person?” speech

Anyway, today I arrived back to work with an envelope on my desk from the organizers of the camp the girls were attending. In it was a certificate marking my participation in the camp, as well as a letter from one of the girls who attended my short little talk. It REALLY touched me, so much so that I’m going to get a frame for it and hang it at work. In the meantime, here’s a scan.
