One this day, in 1815, the world's first computer program was born. I am, of course, referring to August Ada King, Lady of Lovelace. I've written before about The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and Babbage, a remarkable fictional take on the creation of the first computer. If you would like a briefer, non-fiction take on Ada Lovelace to commemorate her birthday, I recommend this video by Feminist Frequency. And if you are reading this, thank Lady Lovelace.
