She is today appreciated as the quot;first programmerquot; since she was writing programs—that is, manipulating symbols according to rules—for a machine that Babbage had not yet built. She also foresaw the capability of computers to go It’s Ada Lovelace Day beyond mere calculating or number-crunching while others, including Babbage himself, focused only on these capabilities.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ada_Lovelace

  5. 5. quot;In
1968
the
largest
building
in
Southeast
Asia
was
the
Infiltra:on Surveillance
Center
(ISC)
at
Nakhom
Phanom
in
Thailand,
the
command center
of
US
Air
Force
Opera:on
Igloo
White.
Inside
the
ISC
vigilant technicians
pored
over
banks
of
video
displays,
controlled
by
IBM 360/65
computers
and
connected
to
thousands
of
sensors
strewn
across the
Ho
Chi
Minh
Trail
in
southern
Laos. quot;The
sensors
‐‐
shaped
like
twigs,
jungle
plants,
and
animal
droppings ‐‐
were
designed
to
detect
any
human
ac:vity:
the
noises
of
truck engines,
body
heat,
even
the
scent
of
human
urine.
When
they
picked up
a
signal,
it
appeared
on
the
remote
display
terminals
of
the
ISC as
a
moving
white
'worm'
superimposed
on
a
map
grid.
As
soon
as
the ISC
computers
could
calculate
the
'worm's'
direc:on
and
rate
of mo:on,
coordinates
were
radioed
to
Phantom
F‐4
jets
patrolling
the night
sky.
The
planes'
naviga:on
systems
and
computers
automa:cally guided
them
to
the
'box,'
or
map
grid
square,
to
be
a]acked.
The
ISC central
computers
were
also
capable
of
controlling
the
release
of bombs
automa:cally.
The
pilot
might
do
no
more
than
sit
and
watch as
the
invisible
jungle
below
exploded
into
flames.
In
most
cases
no American
ever
actually
saw
the
targets
at
all. quot;The
'worm'
would
then
disappear
from
the
screen
at
the
ISC.
This en:re
process
normally
took
no
more
than
five
minutes.quot; (Paul

  11. 11. http://www.we-make-money-not-art.com/archives/locative/ Deconstructing assumptions and political implications of maps Critical cartography differs from academic cartography in that it links geographic knowledge with power. Critical cartographers do not aim to invalidate maps instead the critique is careful analysis of maps identifying attributes of the maps that are taken for granted.
