Natalie Zee Drieu, Editor-in-Chief CRAFT – 24 hours of Lady Ada Lovelace day #ald10

Pt 2735
Pt 2743
Each hour we are featuring a woman we admire who is currently doing amazing work right in the tech/maker/art/science space. Woman of the hour, Natalie Zee Drieu.

Natalie Zee Drieu is an author, writer, designer, and crafty mom living in San Francisco. She is the founder and editor of Coquette, a blog that merges her love of fashion and technology, rated one of the top 50 fashion blogs in the world. Her new online venture, Coquette Maman is a blog that focuses on fashion, style, and life topics for new moms. All that is on the side to her day job as the Editor-in-Chief for CRAFT, one of the largest crafting web sites covering the modern craft movement. In 2008, Folio named Natalie one of the Top 40 Magazine Industry Influencers and Innovators. She has brought her crafting know-how to TV appearances for shows such as KGO/ABC San Francisco’s ‘The View from the Bay’, KRON’s ‘Bay Area Backroads’, and nationally on ‘The CBS Early Show’. When she’s not at the computer, you can usually find Natalie knitting or crocheting with her daughter Chloe and Pomeranian Lulu nearby.

You can check out Natalie’s site here and recent articles/post here. On a personal note, Phil (pt) who works with us at Adafruit and at MAKE says that “Natalie is a wonderful friend and inspiration, we’ve both journeyed through various careers over the last 10 years or so – companies and geographies, Natalie always does amazing things each time and each place. She has designed gorgeous sites in her advertising days used by millions and taught thousands how to knit, that’s range!”.


About today:

Ada Lovelace Day is an international day of blogging (videologging, podcasting, comic drawing etc.!) to draw attention to the achievements of women in technology and science. Women’s contributions often go unacknowledged, their innovations seldom mentioned, their faces rarely recognized. We want you to tell the world about these unsung heroines, whatever they do. It doesn’t matter how new or old your blog is, what gender you are, what language you blog in, or what you normally blog about – everyone is invited.

Who was Ada? Ada Lovelace Augusta Ada King, Countess of Lovelace (10 December 1815 – 27 November 1852) was one of the world’s first computer programmers, and one of the first people to see computers as more than just a machine for doing sums. She wrote programs for Charles Babbage’s Analytical Engine, a general-purpose computing machine, despite the fact that it was never built. She also wrote the very first description of a computer and of software.


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
