Today is Ada Lovelace Day, an international day of blogging to draw attention to women in technology. It is organized by Suw Charman-Anderson.
Signing the petition for this event, I was asked to identify "a woman in technology whom I admire."
My choice is Sara Winge. She is VP of the O'Reilly Radar group. She is smart, clear sighted, fair minded, quick eyed, and sharp tongued. She is a very good guide to the cultures of the tech world. She is an inventor of the Foo Camp and to this extent an architect of the structures from which knowledge now comes.
I have a dandy picture of Sara from a Jerry Michalski event, but I can't seem to load it. There it is.
Post script: I apologize for the "radio silence" of the last couple of weeks. I am almost done the manuscript. So it's nose to the grindstone.
