Happy Ada Lovelace Day: Celebrating women in tech and science

In honor of Ada Lovelace Day, we're highlighting Senior Editor Sonja Thompson's interviews from our Women in IT series and females featured in our Member Spotlight series.

March 24th is Ada Lovelace Day, which is an international day of blogging to celebrate the achievements of women in technology and science. In honor of this geeky holiday, we're highlighting TechRepublic Senior Editor Sonja Thompson's interviews from our Women in IT series and females featured in our TechRepublic Member Spotlight series.

Also, check out ZDNet blogger Mary Jo Foley's interview with Julie Larson-Green, Corporate Vice President, Program Management, Windows Client. This is Mary Jo's first installment in her series on 10 Microsoft Women to Watch.

And, our pal Jay Garmon wrote a women-in-tech-worthy Geek Trivia back in 2007 in which he asked: Which of the six women who were the original primary programmers for ENIAC went on to lay the groundwork for both COBOL and Fortran?

If you're a woman working in IT, tell us what you like the most and the least about working in this industry.
