On Ada Lovelace, Genius

I read everything I could get my hands on about Ada Lovelace in college and she is undoubtedly a genius. And Water Isaacson is undoubtedly a tool. She told Babbage, "hey, you know, we could create programs for this machine and make it do all kinds of stuff, right?" The thought hadn't really occurred to him. She wasn't just the world's first programmer, she invented the idea of computer programs.

On Chicago: Hot or Not?

@Olivia2.0 UGH WRIGLEYVILLE. I am actually looking at Wrigley Field through my living room window right now — Cubs game is about to start. Why did I think this neighborhood was a good idea? So many drunk people and random barf-piles on the sidewalks. I used to live about six blocks from here right off Halsted and I MISS BOYSTOWN SOOOOOOO MUCH YOU GUYS.
