QUERY: VN, Ada Lovelace, Babbage, index cards,
and the history of computing
Dear List,

I know there has been previous discussion of Ada Lovelace on the list in
regards to 'Ada' and the early history of computing. With that in mind,
would anyone be able to direct me towards any existing scholarship on the
relationship between Nabokov and the early history of computing (Babbage,
Ada Lovelace, anything up to Turing), as well as any exploration of Dmitri
Nabokov's comments that Nabokov's index cards were equivalent to his version
of a computer.
