The First Computer Programmer


Ada Lovelace was the daughter of the poet Lord Byron. She was taught by Mary Somerville, a well­-known researcher and scientific author, who introduced her to Charles Babbage in June 1833. Babbage was an English mathematician, who first had the idea for a programmable computer.


In 1842 and 1843, Ada translated the work of an Italian mathematician, Luigi Menabrea, on Babbage’s Analytical Engine. Though mechanical, this machine was an important step in the history of computers; it was the design of a mechanical general-­purpose computer. Babbage worked on it for many years until his death in 1871. However, because of financial, political, and legal issues, the engine was never built. The design of the machine was very modern; it anticipated the first completed general purpose computers by about 100 years.


When Ada translated the article, she added a set of notes which specified in complete detail a method for calculating certain numbers with the Analytical Engine, which have since been recognized by historians as the world’s first computer programme. She also saw possibilities in it that Babbage hadn’t: she realised that the machine could compose pieces of music. The computer programming language ‘Ada’, used in some aviation and military programmes, is named after her.

Coca - Cola is probably the world’s best­-known taste, and was the first truly global brand. Dr. John Stith Pemberton, a pharmacist from Atlanta, Georgia, invented the drink. He mixed the Coca­-Cola syrup, which was combined with carbonated water to make a popular soda fountain drink, in the local Jacob’s Pharmacy. The first customers, who paid a hand-some 5 cents a glass, pronounced the drink to be “excellent,” “delicious and refreshing.”


Dr. Pemberton’s partner and book-keeper, Frank M. Robinson, suggested the pro­ duct’s unusual name and wrote it down in his florid handwriting, feeling that the “two C’s would look well in advertising.” The first advertisement for the drink appeared in the Atlanta Journal, and hand­painted oilcloth signs indicated which soda fountains offered the product. This was just the first step in a fantastic co-operation between the brand and advertising, which has made the trademark universally recognized. A continuous stream of slogans have entered the collective consciousness, from “Drink Coca ­ Cola” in 1886, the iconic “I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing” television advertisement of 1971, right up to the simple assertion “Real” of today’s campaign.


From its original output of around nine drinks a day, Coca­-Cola is now the world’s most ubiquitous brand, serving over 1.3 billion drinks every day.
