Las emocionantes aventuras de Lovelace y Babbage
The (Mostly) True Story of the First Computer (Pantheon Graphic Library)
Sydney Padua - 2015-04-21
Calificación de Goodreads
A graphic novel debut that transforms one of the most compelling scientific collaborations into an unexpected, and hilarious, series of adventures. A unique take on the unrealized invention of the computer in the 1830s by the eccentric polymath Charles Babbage and his accomplice, the daughter of Lord Byron, Ada, Countess of Lovelace. When Ada translated her friend Babbage's plans for the "Difference Engine," her lengthy footnotes contained the first appearance of the general computing theory—one hundred years before an actual computer was built. Sadly, Lovelace died of cancer a few years after publishing the paper, and Babbage never built any of his machines. But now Sydney Padua gives us an alternate reality in which Lovelace and Babbage do build the Difference Engine, and then use it to do battle with the American banking system, the publishing industry, their own fears that their project will lose funding, and a villainous street musician who will force the two friends to reevaluate their priorities—"for the sake of both London and science." (With black-and-white illustrations throughout.)

Spent last night reading @bhorowitz's new book and it's fantastic. I've seen a lot of different cultures good and bad, it can make or break an experience. You can tell there was a significant amount of thought put into the book.      fuente
