Ada Lovelace Day – 24 March 2009

In support of Ada Lovelace Day we are inviting all women who work in media arts and net art to join the NetBehaviour email list for a week between 23rd and 30th March.

We would like to know about your work and that of other women who have inspired you in your own practice. So please come and squat the NetBehaviour list for a week (of course we hope you’ll stick around for longer:) and share your inspirations with our friendly community of artists, academics, writers, code geeks, curators, independent thinkers, activists and net mutualists.

Posts are welcome in any format and frequency.

The following is offered as an example.

Mary Flanagan – for her energetic explorations as academic, educator, artist and programmer at the intersection of games, art and feminism and exploring collaborative approaches to thinking about values in


At the end of the week we will collate all of the posts in the thread and feature them on

See you on Netbehaviour : ))
