Back in the early 19th century, Charles Babbage (Father of computers) came close to building a mechanical computer. The one who I admired from that story was Ada Lovelace, a person who critiqued Babbage's work. Oddly, her father, Lord Byron, is remembered whereas she continues to acquire dust from siting on the shelf.
