Carl Isaacson's new book, The Innovators, begins with a chapter on Ada Lovelace. I learned about Ada years ago and was Gobsmacked by learning of her origins and influence, all those years ago, as a founding parent of information science. Isaacson seems like he's got himself another book that is hard to ignore. Ada Lovelace sits at the top of the cover of The Innovators. Apparently, Isaacson's daughter introduced him to the subject of Ada, years ago. This is for all the girls out there who have told me over the years what they're, "not good at.". Sorry, looks, girls, like your good at just about it all.
