This year LibTechWomen has decided to do a little Ada Lovelace Day blogbombing. (I have my Ada Lovelace pendant around my neck at this very moment!) This was my fault, actually, on finding that a book misattributed the famous Antelope Document, erasing Briet entirely.
The famous what now?
You can see the way I explain this to my students below:
It’s not as elegant as the way Briet casually tosses an antelope at us in the middle of a nerdy nitpicky discussion of the essence of information… but it seems to do the job.
Hooray for Briet on Ada Lovelace Day!
