Happy Ada Lovelace day!

I'll let the OTW explain:
Happy Ada Lovelace Day!

The OTW is an overwhelmingly female organization whose major projects include the design and development of the Archive Of Our Own, which may be the largest, majority female open source software project on the web. ... Our staff is made up largely of female coders, sysadmins, webmasters, designers, and others of considerable technical skill.

Thoughts from committees & links roundup beneath the cut!

A word from our Board:

The OTW Board - which has never been in the same room at the same time; our corporate headquarters are digital - celebrates all our technical women today and every day. We are proud to have a big, healthy open source project – the Archive of Our Own/AO3 – which is designed, coded, documented, supported, and maintained almost entirely by women (and that's not even counting our fabulous sysadmins and webmasters, and the teams that work with MediaWiki, OJS, CiviCRM…)

A few relevant statistics:

Number of AO3 users: 6,038.

Number of A03 fandoms: 5,485.

Number of fanworks: 67, 858.

Lines of code in Archive of Our Own (2007): 0.

Lines of code in Archive of Our Own (2010): 73, 757.

Estimated AO3 project cost: (from ): $989,259.

Value of our amazing team: Priceless.
