    I often ponder observing the internet community and attend some pretty large events, how many men dominate this industry. I was encouraged and delighted with this article, it gave me hope that as a mature wrinklee and female learning all about the net, it gave me a smile and offered a sunshine moment for me. Thanks!

    Wish I would have known sooner, it sounds like something good to write about. A week ago I had an excellent idea for a post about the achievements of women, yesterday would have been a great day to write it. Maybe next week I will.
    Thanks for the updates! :mrgreen: Sara :mrgreen:

    You want to see masterful women in science? So many of us forget nurses and technologists in hospitals. What they do and put up with should be lauded on a daily basis. After 42 years of working with you ladies I salute you now!

    Several years ago I was the adult leader to a club of homeschooling girls that studied women in history. We called the club Go Girls. Each month we would learn about a different woman and have an activity that had something to do with her accomplishments. We studied all sorts of women: Amelia Earhart, Marie Curie, Elizabeth Blackwell, Florence Nightingale, Helen Keller–to name a few. It was great fun! Women rock the world!

    Thank you for recognizing these amazing WordPress women! If I had known about this event earlier, I would have posted about it and recognized women in tech who I admire–like Kathy Sierra who I heard at WordCamp SF and tea Silvestre from my local community! next time, post this more in advance so we can join in!

    Accomplishments, technical or otherwise, are not always gender-specific. Men do, however, have a much higher score especially in the area of making things blow up.

    In 2006, my house was at “Lovelage Gardens” (and then I moved to Lovelace Road). At that time it was rather hard to do some research and find credible information about Loveace. There was no article in Wikipedia for Lovelace and Google was all meshed up with the “lovelace” keyword…

    Let’s celebrate this day, a day where EVERYTHING is in wikipedia and Google :) Thanks Ada!
