Kay Thorne worked with Australia's first computer, CSIRAC. She wrote a short article for the Museum of Victoria CSIRAC collection and said this about women in computing:

Ada Lovelace Day was started last year in 2009 by Suw Charman. It's about celebrating, recording and uncovering the achievements, discoveries and special qualities of women in technology and science.

We are not Unicorns. We are everywhere. But our history is easily submerged, discounted and dismissed. Too easily forgotten.

Thanks Suw - this is an awe inspiring initiative. I salute you.

For Ada Lovelace Day 2010 I salute Jude Milhon.
