Ada Lovelace


Designed by:  Star AthenaThese steampunk-inspired convertible socks are named after a real-life character in "The Difference Engine" by William Gibson and Bruce Sterling.  Daughter of poet Lord Byron, Ada Lovelace was a writer and math wizard who contributed to Charles Babbage's early mechanical general-purpose computer, the Analytical Engine.  She is credited with writing the first algorithm intended to be processed by a machine, and is often regarded as the world's first computer programmer, which earned her the nickname "The Enchantress of Numbers."
