I took a pledge to write about a woman or women in technology for Ada Lovelace Day this year. My post can be found at Susan's Beeswax (it's due to self publish at midnight, so if it's not quite midnight yet & you want to read it, hang on just a little longer)... It's amazing what the early women in computer history did. Initially computer was their job title. As in, "a woman who computes" (complex math long-hand!), eventually transferring to the machine itself. Amazing, amazing women!
As they start rolling in, everyone else who took this pledge, has also been posting to http://ada.pint.org.uk/list.php... Wheee!
