Lady Ada Lovelace joins Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS)

Saturday, December 7th, 2013

Augusta Ada King (née Byron), Countess of Lovelace has joined the Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists, as an historical honorary member.

“Lady Lovelace” (1815-1852) wrote the code for Charles Babbage’s Analytical Engine, and so is often called the first computer programmer.  The computer language “Ada” is named after her, and she had a lot of hair!

She has inspired a range of computer programmers, steampunk illustrators, and at least one YouTube hair tutorial.  You can purchase an image of her hair, via Reddit.

Monday, October 7th, 2013

Tim Poston has joined the Luxuriant Facial Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS) and the Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS) [and/or possibly the Luxuriant Former Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS)]. He says:

I work in a startup whose flagship product photographs eyes for screening, in a country with far too few ophthalmologists: fast (no eye drops), digitally handled and analysed to detect diabetic, hypertensive, etc., problems.  Mathematics has led me to many interesting places. For the The Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists, I have attached a scanned photo of myself from forty years ago (I am also notable in the background of the top picture in the Christopher Zeeman Wikipedia page.) The other photo is for the Luxuriant Facial Hair Club for Scientists.
