Ada Lovelace Day
I just heard about Ada Lovelace Day and I think it’s a super idea.
Ada Lovelace Day is an international day of blogging to draw attention to women excelling in technology. [...] We want you to tell the world about these unsung heroines. Entrepreneurs, innovators, sysadmins, programmers, designers, games developers, hardware experts, tech journalists, tech consultants. The list of tech-related careers is endless. [...] It’s up to you how you interpret the phrase “in technology”. We’re not just interested in hardcore ninja programmers, but any woman who creates, invents, or uses any technology in an innovative way. Feel free to interpret it as widely as you like.
I have taken the pledge, and I hope lots of people in the open source and the library technology worlds participate. I can’t wait to read all of the profiles.
