Students at Brown University threw the nerdiest party of all time: a Wikipedia edit party. The Ada Lovelace Edit-a-Thon, named after the woman credited as the first computer programmer, hoped to bring attention to the gender inequalities on the site. Apparently, men edit women 13-to-1 on the internet encyclopedia. Revelers used the hashtag #AdaWikithon to post scientific achievements by women in the hopes of bring more web attention.
