Celebrate Ada Lovelace Day

PZ Myers:

You’re supposed to celebrate the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering and math today. Some of you women out there will be doing science today, some of you will read about it, and some of you will be doing like I’m doing: teaching it to women (and men!). At the very least, try to tell a girl that she can grow up to be anything she wants — and that includes being a mathematician, an engineer, or a scientist.
If you can't think of any other reason, do it because every time you celebrate female achievement in male-dominated fields, a misogynist loses his erection.
