Seriously though, I'm probably going to be busy with Battlefield 3 #occupymyxbox360

I think one way would be to spend some time teaching introducing girls to technology. If you have a young female relative then it might be great to show her how to use a new program or otherwise get her interested in technology.

And of course let her know who Ada Lovelace was and what she achieved. That sort of role model could be a great thing for a girl to know about, and it might get her interested in a career in technology.
