Behind the name: an encounter with the Difference Engine, a mechanical calculator, led Ada Lovelace down a path she would never look back from. She is now known as the world’s first programmer due to her work with Charles Babbage and the Analytical Engine. She defied 19th century conventions and continues to inspire innovators and creators today. The comics published at DIFFERENCE ENGINE also aim to be catalysts, to nudge readers to look at the world a bit differently.
