Just a reminder that today is Ada Lovelace day, the world's first
programmer, who helped Charles Babbage program his computing machines. This
day celebrates women in technology and science, which has exploded due to
burgeoning hacker culture and accessibility of learning materials.

I want to point out that I got my start in electronics and interest solely
due to Adafruit's, of Limor Fried aka 'Lady Ada' fame, easy tutorials and
use of open source software.

If you want follow along, Adafruit's blog is posting bios on various female
hacker leaders:
