Jessica Faye Carter, Women of Color in Tech Waters for Ada Lovelace Day 2010

What is a old white guy like me doing writing about women, technology, even more so women of color in tech waters?

Blame it on Stephanie Booth for putting Ada Lovelace Day (started by Suw Charman-Anderson) on my map in 2009.

Ada Lovelace Day is "an international day of blogging to celebrate the achievements of women in technology and science" and March 24 is the date when it all takes place.

In 2009, I chose Passionate Heather Luttrell as my pick.

For the 2010 Vintage, I chose Jessica Faye Carter, a young African-American woman and social media entrepreneur.


She wants to convince more Asian-America, African-American, Native American and other people with what she calls 'hyphenated' identities that there is a world of opportunities for them in the tech world at large.

Jessica Faye Carter also works diligently to bring more and more companies to speak to these diverse audiences.

She recently won the 2010 Global ATHENA Young Professional Leadership Award.

Here's her take on Diversity as a source of technological innovation:

Why is Venezia, Food and Dreams by Tessa Kiros (Andrews McMeel Publishing, October 2009) my catch of the day? I would not cite food as the first reason for starting with this tome but rather the dreamy quality...
