Shortly after the first mass-produced calculator (1820), Charles Babbage
<http://www.udayton.edu/%7Ehume/Computers/comp1.htm> began a quest to
invent a programmable machine. His first difference engine was developed
around 1842 as a scaled down version. The full difference engine was
never built. With Babbage’s 1842 difference engine Ada Lovelace
mechanically translated a short written work. As a result she is thought
to be the first programmer . (!)
*1947* A moth, accidentally entering the *Mark II,* causes the
failure of relay number 70 in panel F. The first "bug" has been "born".
Mrs. Grace Murray Hoppers finds the poor thing and tapes it in her log
book with an entry. Mrs. Murray Hopper will eventually become the first
female Rear Admiral of the United States of America.
