Suw Charman-Anderson is one of many professionals concerned about the relatively low numbers of women in technology careers such as IT. She feels that one of the reasons for this is a lack of role models in the field for other women to see.

To draw attention to the issue, and to stimulate widespread discussion, Suw has created "Ada Lovelace Day". It's a campaign to encourage over a thousand people to write a blog or otherwise share their views about a woman in technology who has inspired them -- and to do it together in one concerted push on Tuesday 24th March.

I spoke to Suw via Skype about Ada Lovelace and the thinking behind her campaign.

Remember that you can sign the pledge to take part on March 24th at http://www.pledgebank.com/AdaLovelaceDay
