Ada Lovelace Day is Today!

24 March, 2010

Ada Lovelace Day celebrates the achievement of women in the fields of science and technology.

As I see the origin of the field of science (and thus technology) in philosophy, here are some interesting philosophers from the Ancient world:

Aesara of Lucania, a Pythagorean philosopher, of whom only a page of her work survives (referenced by a Roman writer). In that she wrote: Human nature seems to me to provide a standard of law and justice both for the home and for the city. Which seems a very good starting point for me as well.

Hipparchia of Maroneia, a Cynic philosopher, who fully embraced the lifestyle of the Cynic school, denying the need for material comforts and living in the streets to elevate the life of the mind.

And go take a look at 2D Goggles for fun with a steampunk adventuress version of Ada Lovelace.

Hat tip to the Fame & Fortune blog for letting me know.
