Today is Ada Lovelace Day, celebrating women in Science, Tecnology, Engineering and Mathematics. There is a website at http://findingada.com/. You are encouraged to blog or Twitter (#ALD11) about a women in STEM you admire. I will name Pauline Duckitt, who was an specialist information consultant with energy, enthusiam, expertise and style.
Ada Lovelace (1815-1852) is often cited as the first computer programmer.
