Fast Company magazine, which has a pretty good track record of trying to give women a fair shake in the often-testosterone-heavy world of the technology business, is seeking nominations for “the most influential women in tech” to put on the cover in 2011. Past “cover girls” have included Sheryl Sandberg (Facebook), Rashmi Sinha, (Slideshare), Morgan Romine (Frag Dolls), Jill Tarter (SETI), and Clara Shih (Hearsay Labs).
I hereby nominate Limor Fried.
MIT Media Lab alum, Eyebeam fellow, recipient of the EFF Pioneer award, entrepreneur, open source advocate, bad-ass engineer, founder of adafruit industries—Ladyada belongs on that cover if anyone does. To chime in with your support, go leave a comment over at Fast Company, or on their Facebook page, or tweet #wit11. Better yet, do all three!
