A Little Something Different: The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and Babbage
Today I am taking a break from writing about new tools and apps to write about a new book that may be of interest to technology enthusiasts and comics fans alike. Historians, computer programmers, and technologists may be familiar with the history of Charles Babbage, Ada Lovelace, and the Analytical Engine, but they have certainly never seen it the way that Sydney Padua portrays it in her newly published book, The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and Babbage. This fun steampunk-style comic set in a “pocket universe” a bit unlike our own, is an incredibly entertaining romp that I would higly recommend. Recently, I was fortunate to interview Sydney Padua for The Mary Sue and you can check out her thoughts on Lovelace, Babbage, and writing a comic about their crime fighting ways over there or you can check out the full comic on her website. I hope you will love it just as much as I do!
