Ada Lovelace Day
Today, March 24th, is Ada Lovelace Day. It is an international day that wants to draw attention to women excelling in technology.
I would like to highlight two women here that I admire for their technological skills. I also have the pleasure of knowing them personally and, bonus, they’re librarians!
- Jill Hurst-Wahl is an expert on digitization and social web tools like Second Life. She has her own consulting firm, Hurst Associates and is a faculty member at Syracuse University at the School of Information Studies. She blogs at Digitization 101.
- Stacey Greenwell is an expert on information/learning commons. She is the Universtiy of Kentucky’s Information Commons “Hub” librarian and a former IT support professional. She blogs at The Uncommon Commons.
With these spotlights, I do not wish to undermine all the other women I know that make techology sing (and there are many of them) – please ladies, rock on!
