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!!)
