On Saturday, I gave a talk at the University of Birmingham Women in Tech conference, based on 3 key quotes. Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic Arthur C. Clarke If it weren’t for the people, the god-damn people … always getting tangled up in the machinery. If it weren’t for them, the world would be an engineer’s paradise. Kurt Vonnegut, Player Piano I have in me both north and south polarities; … the deepest Analysis, with brilliant Imagination forever playing on the surface of those grave & fathomless depths. Ada Lovelace, 1844 (Letter to Michael Faraday)
