The Ada Initiative supports women in open technology and culture – looking around my place of work and various conference halls I’ve visited, I think there’s little doubt that we’ve still got an old boy network running here, and I’d like to see that change. I have daughters who may or may not get deep into tech culture, and I’m glad there are people like Val working to make it a better place for them if they do.
And she’s recently gotten a nice bit of potential help: Sage Weil of Ceph & Dreamhost fame has issued a challenge: Raise $8192 in 8 days, and he’ll match it. They’re already on their way. If you can help, please do. Power-of-two donations encouraged, but not required. :) Click the counter below to see their donation page. Thanks!
Edit: The campaign is over, and donation links have been removed.
