Charles Babbage

"The whole of the developments and operations of analysis are now capable of being executed by machinery. ... As soon as an Analytical Engine exists, it will necessarily guide the future course of science."

General and About Me

My purpose in life - well now death - is - was - very simple. It was the same as most people before me and everyone after me. Make life easier!I gave the world something to think about, but they would never appreciate me until people actually started thinking about the amazing calculator. I came up with the idea to help people not have to think, so I began the work on the Analytical Engine and the Difference Machine. They weren't finished until after I DIED. Sad, huh? Five of my children died and I could do nothing about it. By, the way my friends call me Charlie.

There have been exciting moments in my life and I can honestly say that no one - and not even people like the idiots at the Council of the Royal Society - can say that I was not AWESOME. Be thankful those fools are dead. Fine, listen up PEOPLE!!!
Everyone knows me since I invented the Analytical Engine in a time where people could never think of something so "out there". The Council of the Royal Society had stopped me at first from making the machine because it was, well, INSANE to those puny-brained punks of the 19th Century! I was naturally mad at the least, so I said: "The Council of the Royal Society is a collection of men who elect each other to office and then dine together, at the expense of this society, to praise each other over wine and give each other medals." What now!!!!

I am known for my awesome comtirbutions of creating thos fine two devices that nearly revolutionized the sheer nature of society and the world - if only people had noticed it - and I don't appreciate someone trying to sound smarter thatn ME!!!!!! At one particular dinner party, I - of course had a talkative nature - was completely out-talked by Thomas Carlyle, who lectured the company and me for several minutes on the merits of silence. After dinner, an annoyed little me approached Carlyle - and drily thanked him for his interesting lecture on silence.
At any rate, a good ole chap named Dan created something with this interesting technology of the future. I think y'all should see it!
