Babbage at the Beeb and stumbling over another great webcomic…

And then, as these things invariably do, I’m off on a little Internet explore to Sydney Padua’s website and his her webcomic The Adventures Of Lovelace and Babbage. What started as a quick “this is nice, have a look” style 5 minute post turns into half an hour of discovering a nice new webcomic to follow.

To give you an idea of what I’m on about, here’s a page from “Ada Lovelace: The Origin!” by Sydney Padua. Very nice stuff indeed:

    Fairly certain Sydney Padua is female, but it’s awesome regardless that you’re linking Lovelace and Babbage.
