Ada Lovelace Day: 24th March 2009

Suw Charman-Anderson used PledgeBank to set up a 1000 strong group who have pledged to blog about a female technologist whom they admire on 24th March to commemorate  Ada Lovelace one of the computing pioneers who worked with Charles Babbage and is credited with writing the world’s first computer program. She was also the daughter of Lord Byron.

Suw allowed 77 days to achieve her target of 1000 people signing the pledge:  she reached it in 7 days!  But it is not too late to join up.  Just click here and pledge away.  1000 or more people focusing their energies on women in technology will surely cause a ripple in the blogosphere?
