Ada Lovelace Day: Dedicated to the Next Generation

Today is Ada Lovelace Day! In her honor, writers around the world have pledged to publish a note about a woman in technology who they admire. See for more info. It is impossible for me to only pick one woman in technology! For me, there are so many to choose from, including:

  • Lisa Meeden - professor at Swarthmore College who may be the best teacher in the world
  • Laura Blankenship - free-lance geeky mom/educational technological evangelist, who may be the best techno-geeky-mom/wife/friend in the world
  • Jane Prey - has made so many great things happen in my (and many people's) career

But, instead of picking just one woman, I'm going to cop-out and vote for the entire Next Generation of women who will change the face of computing, and take the field in exciting new directions. This includes:

To all of the women in the Next Generation, we salute you!
