Happy Ada Lovelace Day! October 7, 2011


Today is Ada Lovelace Day and I guess this is a good a time as any to post again. This day is to honor women in the sciences since Ada was the first computer programmer.

I posted some time ago about a few of my favorite comics, and one, called Lovelace & Babbage, is about Ada Lovelace and Charles Babbage and their adventures in computer programming. I adore this web comic. It is ridiculous but that’s what makes it so enjoyable. Lovelace & Babbage’s adventures are almost always revolving around Babbage’s Difference Engine (computer) and their need to save Victorian England.
