Ode to Poetic programming

Ada Lovelace described her approach as “poetical science” and perhaps it is the way I envisage programming. The transition from textiles to text files is something I find fascinating such as punch cards and Joseph Marie’s Jacquard loom. Thus weaving is deeply embedded in code. Embedded computing seems to be the perfect link between coding (digital format) and the anologue (celluloid film, sewing machines).
