Time to pledge for Ada Lovelace Day 2010!

Thanks to TechnoPhobia, Stephanie Troeth, Stephanie Booth and the other Ada Lovelace Day volunteers, I’m happy to announce that the new Ada Lovelace Day Pledge is up and running! Please go and sign up, and join us on 24th March 2010 in celebrating your tech heroine. We are hoping to get 3072 people to sign the pledge this year, so let your friends know and help us hit our target!

We are still doing a little bit of polishing of the website, getting it all ready for the big day. If you have any suggestions or feedback, please feel free to leave them on our UserVoice forum. And don’t forget to keen an eye on Twitter for up-to-the-minute news!

  1. Thanks so much! I’ve really enjoyed being involved in this great opportunity. I blogged last year, and I preparing my new blog post for March 24, 2010. I’ve shared this information with all people in my network, so I hope to see many of them posting this year also.

    While I’m not a programmer, I would like to help. If you need any help, please let me know.

  2. @Mary: 3072 is a standard 8-bit cryptography key length. 😉 Geek humour at its most obscure.

    @Huma: Thank you! We need all the support we can get!

    @Yewtree: Tag is ALD10!

    @Sheryl: Thank you! It’s great to hear that people are excited!

    @Roger, isn’t your comment just a bit of comfy-couch middle-class Marxist bullshit?

  3. The Countess of Lovelace resents the word ‘bourgeois’; she is most assuredly of the decadent aristocratic feminism.

  5. Thanks so much for doing this. I will pass it along to as many people as I can. I am revising and rewriting “Ada, The Enchantress of Numbers” so it will be digitized very soon and will make it easier for people to use the material. In this edition I am including puzzles and games.
