ZOMG I've got to plug this comic. Even though it's been around a while (3/4 years?). I knew about it, after reading the origin of Ada Lovelace, but hadn't gotten back to it until recently, where I'm totally cracking up in the middle of Lovelace and Babbage vs The Organist.
The comics are funny partially because they are based on the letters between Babbage and Lovelace, and the other characters who appear were already awesome (especially cigar-chomping engineer Brunel). Babbage's well-known hatred of music, especially street music, is a great source of hilarity especially in the episode I'm reading now.
If you have any ounce of nerdiness in you and can stand web comics in any way, you must read this!
