    For the Geekesses

    Slightly behind the times, but I've just discovered that the 7th was Ada Lovelace day.

    o, if you know a geekess in maths, science or computing you can give them a belated shout-out.

    Well, jamesb - you know one or two!

    NB: There is no feminine noun - we are ALL just geeks!

    Female geeks seemed a little too clinical.

    I think this post is for all Geeks - not just the female ones. There's no reason for male Geeks not to celebrate a female predecessor any less than they would a male one
