It’s late in the day in my time zone, but maybe not too late to celebrate women’s contribution to technology.
Today has been declared Ada Lovelace Day, a celebration of women in technology named after the first computer programmer. Born Augusta Ada Byron—yes, that Byron—she was schooled in mathematics at her mother’s insistence and, as Wikipedia says, her “interest in mathematics dominated her life even after her marriage.” (OMG NO WAY. ::facepalm::)
And here’s a list of inspirations, including none other than Xeni Jardin.
Feministing lists some notable achievers, too.
