Yesterday, March 24, was Ada Lovelace Day. I was at Pumping Station: One, and decided to spend an hour or so writing something to honor the first computer programmer. I was feeling singularly uninspired, and googling for “Ada Lovelace” didn’t turn up anything interesting. But it did give me an idea: write a program that googles for you!
The only downside I’ve found is that even if you request a “large” result set, you only get 8 results. I don’t know of a way to get subsequent results. So this really only cycles through a few images. Still, it only took me an hour, and most of that was remembering how to use the DOM.
