days of life

Yesterday was Ada Lovelace Day – a day for celebrating female contributions to the techie world. I work in the library field which is 80 odd % female. Chances are there’s gonna be a lot of good ones. My two best bosses ever (and I s’pose I think of them as sorts of mentors too though never in any sort of official capacity)  are Maryce Johnstone (in my current job with Gale) and Kate Curr (in a previous job with the NSW Parliamentary Library). I find them both inspiring, both have had decades of involvement in the techie side of librarianship, one selling library systems and databases and the other managing such. Both are practical and down to earth, both seem to keep on getting things done, both remain interested in new developments. Both are inspiring.
