Happy Ada Lovelace Day!

Radiation Level:  Icelandic

Listening To:  Crystaline by Bjork

I'm Ada Lovelace, Dammit!

If you don’t know what Ada Lovelace Day is, I can tell you it’s a smashing celebration of women in science, technology and mathematics!  If you don’t know who Ada Lovelace is, click here.

On this day, men and women all over the web, choose one of their favorite women who inspired them scientifically.  Today I choose Bjork.

Oh gosh, FalloutGirl - I'm so honored!

Her new CD Biophilia is “released as 10 in-app experiences that are accessed as you fly though a three-dimensional galaxy that accompanies the album’s theme song Cosmogony.”  – The App Store

And the app is FREE!

Bjork's new CD, Biophilia

What is Biophila all about?  From bjork.com:  “Biophilia is an interdisciplinary exploration of the universe and its physical forces-particularly those where music, nature, and technology meet-inspired by these relationships between musical structures and natural phenomena, from the atomic to the cosmic.”
How cool is that?  Bjork, you’ve managed to beautifully blend science and art, I bow at your feet.  I hope they study your brain after you die, seriously – you never fail to impress me.  Ada would have LOVED YOU!
Here is a sampling of all the apps.  Enjoy!
