Suw Charman, of Ada Lovelace Day fame, sez,
Film maker Rosemarie Reed has been in touch with me about a film she's planning called Byron and Babbage: A Calculating Story. Based on Ada Lovelace's letters, it will be a feature-length documentary with some dramatic readings and will air on PBS National.
Byron and Babbage: A Calculating Story
Rosemarie needs to gather letters of support from the community - from people who feel that Ada is an important figure.
Rosemarie says, "I need letters from people stating how important a film like Ada is and how they through their networks can help to publicize the film. It would be great if the women have organizations they work or belong to. If they are software developers or computer experts, this would be great. It would be best if they were Americans, as the NSF (National Science Foundation) is American."
Letters should be sent by the end of October to:
On the Road Productions International, Inc.
