I don’t usually post on Wednesdays, but it’s Ada Lovelace Day! Today, blogs all over the world will be posting something about women in technology and science.

Who is my current tech hero?
Read my post about Freckle…
In her personal manifesto, she lists the underlying values that guide her work. It’s a beautiful list…
Group number one:
- Beauty is as crucial to human happiness as function
- By doing great things, we invite & give permission for the people around us to do great things
- There is no such thing as “business ethics,” there is only “ethics,” full stop.
Group number two:
- Software can be uplifting
- Software can be cheerful and beautiful (even business software!)
- Software should help you grow, not just do what you expect it to do
Group number three:
And that’s why this woman is my hero.
That is all.
Happy Ada Lovelace Day!
