Ada Lovelace day - March 24th 2009

How could we let this day pass without a mention. March 24th is Ada Lovelace day. Ada Lovelace Day is an international day of blogging to draw attention to women excelling in technology. Women's contributions often go unacknowledged, their innovations seldom mentioned, their faces rarely recognized.

Our favorite technology women are as follows:

Meg Whitman - ebay
Charline Li - ex of Forrester, now Altimeter Group
Jaqui Cheng - Ars technica
Pattie Maes - MIT
Kelly Dobson - MIT Robot girl

Please add your unsung heroines of Tech in the comments section below (as above they do not need to be gay!). Thanks Ada.
