Untangling the Tale of Ada Lovelace

I really enjoyed this story. Mathematics to me is a mysterious foreign language that I never grasped in school and makes my mind boggle — but yet as an adult, I have grown to understand the poetry and beauty in it, and appreciate those great minds who can actually master it.

It is lovely to read of a woman who was able to be up there with the greats, and even whip Babbage into gear a little. Just goes to show the important role women can play in science (and I mean not just to whip the men into gear!!)

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
