So there I was reading a post by Howard Rheingold about Twitter and decided to check out his Twitter feed (@hrheingold) and found a retweet about Mother Coders.  The organization is working to support mothers in their efforts to learn programming skills as a way into technical careers.  Naturally, they are far more eloquent in describing what they do.  I think it is an amazing idea and project.  And I agree, we should not lose all that talent simply because so many women choose to become mothers.  We need to provide as much support and encouragement to those mothers want to stay careers.   Check it out.
