Happy Ada Lovelace day

Augusta "Ada", Countess of Lovelace was Lord Byron's only legitimate daughter and went on to work with Charles Babbage on his difference engine, the first modern computer. She was a brilliant mathematician and was the first to describe the software used by modern Computers.

In a century where we are constantly championing to role of Women in our society, surely we should be making this amazing lady as well known as Stephenson, Faraday and Newton?

If it were not for Ada, life would be very different today and I for one would not have a business!
