Ada Lovelace for blog

Augusta Ada King, Countess of Lovelace (1815 – 1852) Mother of the Modern Computer

She was born born Augusta Ada Byron, and is now known as Ada Lovelace. She was the daughter of legendary romantic figure, Lord Byron. Her brilliant talents in the fields of mathematics led to her association with fellow mathematician Charles Babbage who had written on something he called “The Analytical Engine.” Between 1842 and 1843, she translated an article by Italian military engineer Luigi Menabrea on Babbage’s “Engine,” and completed a monumental set of what she called “Notes” containing an algorithm considered to be the first computer program.

Hypatia 2013

Acrylic on canvas board 20 X 30″

hypatia 3
This 4th – 5th Century philosopher/mathematician investigated and taught the geometry of cones, and by extension, ellipses, parabolas and hyperbolas. She was head of a Plato Academy in Alexandria and a defender of the famous, but ultimately doomed library of that historical center of classical civilization. She too, was doomed to be murdered by a mob of anti-intellectual monks, but her service to mathematics, to civilization and to the status of women is eternal.

Ghost Riders in the Sky

Filed under: My Art — doktorjohn January 6, 2012 @ 2:46 pm

A tribute to that great American classic that has been performed and recorded by countless musicians from country to electronic, from big band to Goth, from jazz to alternative, from metal to folk—and more.
Among my favorites are the big band version by Vaughn Monroe, and the hard rock version by The Outlaws, but REM and the Ventures join the ranks of Tom Jones, Roy Rodgers, Gene Autry and Burl Ives. The most recent excellent entry is by Mark Sinnis and his “Cemetery-and-Western” group, Ninth House, whose version was the inspiration for this art piece.
