DID YOU KNOW that the first information-processing device with practical uses was a miracle of the Industrial Revolution. It was invented by the French weaver Joseph-Marie Jacquard. Jacquard had the idea for the loom as early as 1790, but the French Revolution got in the way, which is why he could not complete his invention until 1805.
The Jacquard loom was the first machine to be controlled by punch cards. The punch cards tell the loom which patterns to weave. The punched cards represent a binary system. They are scanned by needles. If the needle does not hit a hole, the thread is lifted; if the needle hits a hole, the thread is lowered.
Thus, the Jacquard loom was of enormous value for computing and allowed important conclusions for computing: machines can be influenced to do something differently than intended. In addition, a punch card can be used to control a machine. Most important, however, was the realisation that a machine can perform different tasks by being fed them in a language it understands. Machines became programmable. So programming was invented even before the computer.
