Reminder: Ada Lovelace Day tomorrow! [See Jane Compute]

Just a friendly reminder that tomorrow, March 24, is Ada Lovelace Day, a day devoted to highlighting women in technology. Get your posts together! (Even if you didn't sign the pledge, please join in on the fun!) Details on how to post and tag are here.

Details are here. So go show her some clicky love, ok?
