Sorta relevant to both groups...

Augusta Ada King-Noel, Countess of Lovelace (and daughter of Lord Byron), 
was born on this day in 1815; arguably the world's first computer 
programmer and a highly independent woman, she saw the potential in 
Charles Babbage's new-fangled invention.

J.F.Ossanna was given unto us on this day in 1928; a prolific programmer, 
he not only had a hand in developing Unix but also gave us the ROFF 

Who'ld've thought that two computer greats would share the same birthday?
