kitty: Happy Ada Lovelace Day

Dear Programmers...

Have you hugged your favorite fiber artist today to thank there craft for lending itself to the skill set needed for the FIRST COMPUTER PROGRAMER, Ada Lovelace a weaver and mathematician???

Happy Ada Lovelace Day,
“an international day of blogging to celebrate the achievements of women in technology and science”.

Woman in science have long been undervalued for their achievements. So today it the day to raise awareness of the presence of women in science and technology and to remind men in technical communities that women are unquestionably capable of great achievments and we deserve there respect.

I for one remind every programmer and hacking friend, that the first programmer was a woman and a weaver.

Thank you Ada....

  1. I never heard of her, but you've piqued my interest. I'm going to have to learn more!

  2. And she was pretty, too!

    Glad you like my eye-searing yarn :)
