Ada Lovelace Day is an international day of blogging to celebrate the achievements of women in technology and science.  http://findingada.com/about/

You know that there are hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of them out there in the past, but you don’t know them: all the women who made great technological contributions and advances through the ages but never, ever got one iota of the credit they deserved.  Sometimes they received a mention or a footnote, but, more often, the greater glory went to the man involved.  

So on this Ada Lovelace Day I ask you to mediate on all the women whose contributions must be touching our lives today, but whose identities will forever remain unknown.
