Worldwide Events 2013.

The website Finding Ada is collating information about worldwide events to celebrate women in STEM in honor of Ada Lovelace Day on October 15, 2013. (Not sure who Ada Lovelace is? Read about her here but be sure to come back to read about these great events celebrating her legacy.)

If you can’t make it to an offline event, there are multiple online ways to participate, including writing a blog post about a women in STEM whose accomplishments you admire!

Just write your blog post, publish it, and then head on over to findingada.com to add your story to their collection.

I am celebrating by participating in Design Your World, a STEM for Girls conference, on October 19 with my Fashioning Circuits project. In addition, I’m giving a talk on “Fashion and the Threads of Digital Literacy” at the end of the month (A new talk on diversity each Friday in October; Free tickets here).

Let’s all actively work toward a future in which I no longer have any need to use my Sad Ada Lovelace meme!

I invented a new meme: Sad Ada Lovelace. Thanks to http://www-history.mcs.st-and.ac.uk/PictDisplay/Lovelace.html for the image.
