  1. I always maintain that Barbara Gordon (aka Batgirl) was a far better crimefighter later on, after being paralysed by the Joker and wheelchair-bound, when she became “Oracle”, and used her library and information science knowledge to fight crime as an information broker working with computer communications systems.

  2. And even better … since 1989 Batgirl has been known as Oracle. Though her character is paralyzed, she becomes Batman’s sole source of information. From Wikipedia: “In a world increasingly centered on technology and information, she possesses a genius-level intellect; photographic memory; deep knowledge of computers and electronics; expert skills as a hacker; and graduate training in library sciences.” Cool!

  3. Hi Stephen,
    I’m looking forward to meeting you on Wednesday when you come to speak at Allen County Public Library. Thanks for the link to Batgirl. Now I have a new role model!
