ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
I'm loving the design the Ada Lovelace Day organizers put together for these great T-shirts celebrating women in technology. Ada Lovelace Day, a blogging holiday honoring the often overlooked work done by women in the sciences, is March 24th.
my cats are named newton, copernicus, and ada (after ada lovelace). thank you for getting her name out there, she should be a household name!!
I work for BrainPOP, which is an educational site for kids. We made a new free movie to about Ada Lovelace and her contributions:
Super! A perfect measure for all women!!
Is Lady Ada carrying a cane or a crowbar?
I think it’s a crowbar as she was a hacker before being a hacker was cool.
My dog is named Ada, partly in honor of Ada Lovelace.
My daughter is named Ada. Rarely, someone asks, “Like, Lovelace?” but everyone loves it. She’s making us proud by totally hacking her four-year-old world, and oh, yes, we will be celebrating Ada Day.
While this is a cool idea, Ada is probably the least overlooked overlooked lady scientist – How about Lise Meitner day? Or Emmy Noether day? Or Pierre Curie day :P – overlooked spouses deserve their own mention too!
…This could be easily photochopped into a Linda Lovelace Day poster.
This is by Sydney Padua and Lorin Oâ€™Brien. Sydney draws “The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and Babbage”, found at http://sydneypadua.com/2dgoggles/.
This is a wonderful logo, sporting a bit of steampunk in addition to the message itself. I’ve got two nieces and I’m waiting for them to get a little older so we can start doing maker types of things. Yes, little girls like ponies and princesses, but why can’t the princesses make anything, do anything?
