Today is Hedy Lamarr’s 100th Birthday. If you have a wireless anything you have her to txt your thank you too. She was an Austrian born actress making movies from 1930 all the way to 1958. She and her composer partner George Antheil, that’s right musical composer he scored movies and shit, also created something called Spread Spectrum which helps facilitate wireless communication.
Happy 100th to a woman who literally helped change the way the world interacts while also making some badass movies.
Oh and she did all this at a time when women weren’t ever expected to leave the house. Thanks for the Future Hedy
