Oh, I did not forget! I was well aware that yesterday was Ada Lovelace Day. However, I had more pressing things going on and was unable to be on the computer scarfing up all the info I could about my dearest friend who lives in the past. She may not know we are close friends, but that is ok.
I think I may have shared some of these before, but as far as I am concerned you can never get enough of Ada!
I am so excited for this to come out Wollstonecraft. I did support his kickstarter and am anxiously awaiting the digital version to come. Here is the authors fb page Jordan Stratford so you can go check it out if you would like. I think it is such a wonderful idea to try to motivate any girls to become as pro-tech, pro-science, pro-anything that has been predominantly male engulfed type of subject, occupation, etc… I understand that some girls may have no interest in it, but I wonder how much of that is influenced by the prominent gender roles that have been placed on us.
I believe the same applies for everyone – I feel that it is important to let people cultivate their interests and their gifting no matter what society may think. Tear down gender roles and let people be people. Allow them to succeed it has nothing to do with their sexuality, though that may not fit the “societal norm,” the main thing is that people are allowed to succeed in life in what comes naturally to them. We all have talents and giftings that could impact our world no matter how great or small our contribution – if we are allowed to learn how to build into them and are able to share without judgment. I do not know if I made any sense there I went on a rambling adventure!
Hey, while I am at it, here are some other things I have been wandering around lately.
