12:00 AM - Charles Babbage is the first programmer?
It gets weirder. I guess the wikipedia spin is that she corrected some errors in the first program. However, some people don't even want to give her that much credit.
This is a very strage outcome. The other odd factor is that prior to that publication ada lovelace did know babbage so its entirely possible she did write the programs. I haven't read the actual documents these people are using, but it does open up questions.
