    Carrie - great weekend links. Who would you say was the biggest contributing woman in Technology? I propose Ada Lovelace. In addition to now having her own day, and her own award, her name was also used by the D.O.D. “Ada” is the name the Department of Defense gave to its computer language in 1980.
