Julie Perlmutter – Channeling Ada

Today (March 24, 2010) is Ada Lovelace
, a global celebration honoring women in technology. This is the
second year for the event, which is celebrated by blogging about your
favorite woman in technology.
My favorite, is Julie Perlmutter, who
introduces thousands of people to new technology with her Web Managers
Roundtable. She enjoys the tribe and the celebration part of the
organization, and is a pure technological agnostic, sometimes amused and
sometimes bored by the intellectual heat and language of her partisan
zealots. Over the years, Julie has let us watch the Internet mature from
a ringside seat.
I don’t think she ever met a technology she didn’t
like, if the people said they wanted to have a meeting to learn about
it. We’ve learned important things from big companies, small companies,
idealists, and dreamers. We’ve learned about how it is, how it should
be, and how it might be.
Julie’s core audience are the managers of
the top 100 transaction websites in the Washington DC area.
year, we put up a LinkedIn Group to augment the meetings. She must be
doing something right because we average 100 people per meeting and we
have over a thousand members on the Web
Managers Roundtable LinkedIn Group
, from all over the world. Ada
