Blogging Event: Ada Lovelace Day 3/24/10

Thanks to the potential snowmaggedon/snowpocalypse/snOMG, yesterday my interview was postponed until this afternoon, leaving a few free moments for me to put up this quick hit:

Ada Lovelace Day is being celebrated on March 24th this year. It's a day to recognize the contributions women have made in the fields of science and technology. Bloggers pledge to make a post on March 24th about a woman in science; I'm pledging to review a book that day. Want to join in the pledge with me?

More about the celebration, and Ada Lovelace, can be found on their website. Fellow Scott Westerfeld fans already know Ada Lovelace was the first computer programer, loooooooong before we had computers, as she is featured in the Midnighters trilogy.
