Happy Ada Lovelace Day!
This is a submissions thread for Wednesday Geek Woman series of profiles. This time you have two submission options:
- submit your Ada Lovelace Day profile for cross-posting
- submit in comments here as usual
Option 1a: submit your Ada Lovelace Day profile for cross-posting.
To do this, simply leave the URL of your ALD post in comments. In addition, you can optionally include:
- optionally, a one sentence biography about yourself, with any links you want.
- optionally, a note that you are willing to release your profile under Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported
- the profile must be written by you
- the profile will still be checked against our standard criteria before posting (see below)
Option 1b: submit your Ada Lovelace Day profile for a round-up
This mostly applies to anyone who wrote about a woman we’ve already featured. We won’t cross-post your posts, but we’d love to stick them in a roundup.
Option 2: submit in comments here.
Note: this option is not limited to profiles of women in STEM.
Submit your profile of a geek woman in (hidden) comments here and selected ones will be posted (perhaps lightly edited). Here’s what to include:
- Optional: a quick one sentence bio paragraph about yourself, with any links you want. For example:
Mary is a humble geek blogger and you can find her at <a href=”http://geekfeminism.org/”>geekfeminism.org</a>Notes:
- if this bio line is missing, you will be assumed to want to be anonymous. This applies even if you put a name and URL in the comment field.
- don’t feel pressured into revealing things about yourself you don’t want to. A pseudonymous, mysterious, vague or simple bio is fine.
- Compulsory: two or more parapraphs describing your geek woman, ideally including why you admire her in particular.
- Optional: links to her biography, her Wikipedia page, and so on.
- Optional: agreement that your post can be used under Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported (posts that have this can be used in the Geek Feminism wiki).
See previous posts for examples.
Here’s a form you could copy and paste into comments:
My bio (one sentence only, optional):
Name or pseudonym of the geek woman I am submitting:
A few words summarising the woman’s geek accomplishments (for example “AI researcher” or “discoverer of supernova” or “engine mechanic”):
My post about this woman (two or more paragraphs):
Links to this woman elsewhere (optional):
[Please delete this line if you don't agree!] I agree to licence my post under Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported.
