trillian_stars is Geekadelphia's Geek of the Week for her portrayal of Ada Lovelace in the upcoming production of Childe Byron (opens September 28th at Allens Lane theater in Philadelphia). (Get tickets here. $18 in advance and $20 at the door.)

The play takes place on the famous computer programer's last day on Earth and consists largely of a conversation / argument between her and the famous father she never knew, Lord Byron. Ada, as the geeks here already know, was one of the greatest mathematical minds of her time and her collaboration with Charles Babbage had the potential to throw the world into an early age of computational discovery were it not for her tragic death at 36. (THAT's why you don't have a jetpack.)

Lots more Childe Byron stuff coming up in the next week. We're doing a series of videos and, now that I think of it, we're looking for a medical professional who can talk about the effects of laudanum. PLUS we're looking for a model of Charles Babbages Analytical or Difference Engine. Either one.
