The Lovie Awards

Pt 101349

The Lovie Awards, named in honor of the “first computer programer” Ada Lovelace, the Lovie Awards (a “sister award” to the Webbys) aims to honor innovation creative ingenuity among all of the outstanding work in Europe.

‘Lovie’, named in honour of Ada Lovelace, represents outstanding achievement in computer technology. Ada Lovelace is credited as being the first programmer and is a lasting symbol of European innovation and creative ingenuity.

The heart is a universal symbol for love and represents the passion evoked by awesomeness on the internet. No other medium has created such enthusiastic, dedicated followers quite like the web!

It’s interesting they’re calling it the Lovies after Ada Lovelace. Under websites they do have “Education” – that’s a good start, hopefully they’ve have more how-to content like categories and talk about Ada Lovelace as they promote the awards. Maybe it’s time to do up some awards for best programming resources online? GitHub would win a few categories for sure 🙂
