March 25, 2010
Its the 25th here in Oz, which means I’m a day late, but I’ve been urged by some in the blogosphere to acknowledge Ada Lovelace Day. So I’m happy to link to this piece of nerdy goodness, as a celebration.
On that general subject, I’d be happy to celebrate π day as well. But it’s based on the North American tradition of putting the month first. (So when we hear 9/11, we just say “did something important happen on November 9th?”)
Of course the Brit-o-centric part of the blogosphere could just declare π day to be July 22nd, but that would seem… divisive…
