I’ve always appreciated knowing of Ada Lovelace, the world’s first computer programmer, because notable scientific women are still rare. I don’t know much about her life, though.
I don’t think Ada Lovelace: The Origin!, by Sydney Padua, will help in that direction, but boy, did I laugh!
The idea that she was taught mathematics to avoid her “becoming poetical” is probably right, come to think of it. And I found the Twitter joke hilarious. That’s also why my friend David sent it to me, since he doesn’t get the fun of tweeting.
2-D Goggles is going on my reading list right now! There are more adventures of Lovelace and Babbage there.
