I had planned to focus on Ada Lovelace Day.

Today is the fifth annual international day celebrating the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM). I have taken part each year since 2009, but my old blog is offline and therefore I am unable to link to the previous posts.

Toyboys are tampering with my old blog in a nice way and perhaps I’ll wake up one morning to find all 2,000 and odd posts magically appearing here at this blog address.  

This year Ada Lovelace Day is receiving plenty of coverage across the media –

If you are interested in how the day will be marked in UK then Finding Ada might help!

No offence to Ada, but I am trying to have a self imposed pre-technology few days, working away on finishing off a project or two.

    Ada was fascinatingly complex. She even had an interest in Phrenology:
    ‘Observe his various bumps, his head as I uncover it;
    His morals lie in lumps, all round about and over it.’

      WWW, I will. One is on the last stages and another – totally different is still being worked in my head and on paper – not ready to be called ‘a work in progress’!

    Women have been responsible for far more inventions than men realise (and often women too). Our old blogmate Baino had a long list once, which you added to later. It included the washing machine, the fridge, the dishwasher, the cooking stove, the car heater, the medical syringe and many others.
