Here is my ten references to utilize for my video project of Ada Lovelace:

(1) Book: (I have 6 books to look through) These books are coming from the Manhattan campus; they haven’t made it to my campus yet, so I am listing all six and I cannot properly cite them yet (do to lack of info on them).

Toole, B.A., “Ada Byron, Lady Lovelace, an analyst and metaphysician,” Annals of the History of Computing, IEEE , vol.18, no.3, pp.4,12, Fall 1996 doi: 10.1109/85.511939
Abstract: There may be controversy about when the computer revolution began, but to me a revolution begins with an idea, and that idea was Charles Babbage’s Analytical Engine conceived in 1834. The computer revolution also began with a woman, Augusta Ada Byron, Lady Lovelace, who wrote an article in 1843 that not only gave us descriptive, analytical, contextual, and metaphysical information about the Analytical Engine but also the first program. Her prescient comments have stood the test of time. Augusta Ada Byron, Lady Lovelace (1815-1852), is regarded by some people as the first programmer and by others as a science fiction archetype, perhaps as “mad and bad” as her illustrious father, Lord Byron. At the very least, Ada is one of the most colorful characters in computer history.
Hooper, R. (2012). One minute with… Ada Lovelace. New Scientist, 216(2886), 29.
Abstract:  The article presents a fictional interview with computer scientist Ada Lovelace, author of the first computer algorithm, compiled from her  correspondence. She discusses the influence of her father, poet Lord George Byron, her work with mathematician Charles Babbage, and her predictions of the use of computers to process types of information.
