Souvik Wednesday, March 24, 2010Today is Lady Ada Lovelace's birthday. She is one person I respect hugely and I'm surprised that she wasn't remembered today as much as I expected her to be. In fact, I don't think anyone in my university remembered despite the fact that we have a building called 'Ada Byron King'!
Anyway, here's a paper that I wrote a while ago on Lady Lovelace and multimedia (I think I've even tried to imagine her as a gamer).
'Literature is a combinatorial game that pursues the possibilities implicit in its own material [...] but it is a game that at a certain point is invested with an unexpected meaning' - Italo Calvino
