We’ve been thinking (yes we know it’s dangerous). And we’d like to profile some local girl geeks on this blog.
There’s lots of geeky women doing cool stuff around here and we’d like to know about it.
Please nominate geeky women you think the world should know about here:
Nominate a girl geek now!
Last year many of us supported Ada Lovelace Day, the international day of blogging to draw attention to women excelling in technology and science. It’s now time to pledge your support once more for Ada Lovelace Day, 24 March 2010. To sign up, please go to http://findingada.com/ and add your details to the brand new pledge!
It was an amazing day last year, with over 1200 people writing about a woman in technology or science whom they admire. We got lots of coverage in the US and international press and even appeared on the BBC News Channel. Women’s contributions often go unacknowledged, their innovations seldom mentioned, their faces rarely recognised. We wanted you to tell the world about these
unsung heroines, and you did. Thank you!
But our work is not yet done. This year we want 3072 people to sign up to our pledge and to write their tribute to women in tech. We have the 72, we just need the 3000, which is where you come in. Please sign the pledge at http://findingada.com/ and let all your friends know about it.
It doesn’t matter how new or old your blog is, what gender you are, what language you blog in, if you do text, audio or video, or what you normally blog about – everyone is invited to take part. All you need to do is sign up to this pledge and then publish your blog post any time on Wednesday 24th March 2010.
If you’re going to be away that day, feel free to write your post in advance and set your blogging system to publish it that day.
