a challenger appears

found this linked from my new obsession, sydney padua’s ada lovelace & charles babbage steampunk (sort-of) comic which is fascinating in and of itself, but also due to the extensive footnoting she includes. i’ve just read in charles babbage’s autobiography how he went for a little hike inside vesuvius as it was active and i’m totally in love with the guy. who btw can’t stand whisky or street music. also ada lovelace was the only legitimate child of lord byron and her mother took her away from him and had her raised by scientists and mathematicians in order to quell any possible poetical tendencies she might have inherited from lord byron, who was – well, lord byron.
