Lovelace is in many ways the patron saint of Sadie Plants exploration of womens roles in the creation of modern technology. The book begins with Lovelaces story, and elements of her writings appear throughout the book--sometimes to emphasize points but often to exemplify attitude.

They also serve to anchor Plants dynamic, almost stream-of-conscious approach as we travel to 19th-century Europe to meet the nameless women who laid the foundation of modern technology with the development of weaving, survey the major female technological innovators of today, and even explore female figures in technology-based fiction.Plants cyberfeminist rant, as William Gibson calls it, attempts to demonstrate that women have always used technology.

You wont find victims here, rather women who were empowered by the technological innovations in their lives. What emerges is a very nontraditional feminist picture, one in which women are neither bystanders nor victims but are in many ways the unsung heroes of technical innovation. The author also points to a future where, within zeros and ones of cyberspace many such dichotomies of life/machine, let alone male/female, may blur in unexpected ways.
