Ada Lovelace Day – Diversity Drives Innovation   Leave a comment

Alongside Alan Turing and before him, Ada Lovelace is arguably as close to an "inventor" the notion of digital computer gets, and arguably at least as out of standard social rules in the early 19th century, being a woman scientist, as Turing was when exposed and prosecuted as homosexual in mid 20th century.
 
Let us all keep our eyes open for our colleagues who choose to challenge consensus, standards and rules, and can do so constructively at that.
Let’s embrace their contribution., as their approach and special skills have helped and will help us all innovate.
