Though internet spreads the word at lightening speed, but i came to know about Ada Lovelace Day 3 days late. Pardon my ignorance.
To quote from website http://findingada.com/
Ada Lovelace Day is an international day of blogging to draw attention to women excelling in technology
Who was Ada ?
The name that promptly came to my mind of woman in technology i admire is :
Nowdays she works with SixApart.
Its not too late to celebrate i think, spread the word and tell the world about women you admire in technology.
