Ada Lovelace Day 2009 - Susan Bradley - SBS Diva

Ada Lovelace Day is an international day of blogging to draw attention to women excelling in technology.

SusanBradley Women’s contributions often go unacknowledged, their innovations seldom mentioned, their faces rarely recognised. We want you to tell the world about these unsung heroines. Entrepreneurs, innovators, sysadmins, programmers, designers, games developers, hardware experts, tech journalists, tech consultants. The list of tech-related careers is endless.

The Finding Ada blog set up a pledge process to find 1,000 people to publish articles on women who have excelled in IT and are role models for other women in the industry and for those thinking of starting careers in IT.
