To Ada Lovelace, mathematician, pioneer computer programmer. From Penny Andrews.

Scan of the letter


Dear Ada Lovelace,

You taught me that women could be involved in technology and do inventive things and that being creative wasn’t incompatible with understanding how things work - even if the men usually get the credit.

I went to uni at 28 and got an IT degree, then a Masters and now I’m doing a PhD.

Trying to get stuff done before the evil robots / evil algorithms take over the world.
