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

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 N. Edwards, quot;The Closed World,quot; chapter 1) Subject: Re: <nebme> Cyberne:cs and the Internet Date: March 15, 2009 3:31:31 AM EDT From: Brian Holmes

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.

http://www.ourstories.org/ The Our Stories™ project helps people share the stories of their lives, no matter where they live or how their stories unfold. We're providing resources to create and share personal stories from all over the world, starting with children in developing countries who are using One Laptop per Child (OLPC) computers or those who are working with UNICEF radio producers to record and share interviews. Children are asked to record the stories of elders, family members, and friends.
