An accomplished computer programmer and entrepreneur, Craig Jensen founded Condusiv Technologies Corporation (formerly Diskeeper Corporation) in 1981 and now serves as the company’s chairman. Outside of his activities at Condusiv Technologies, Craig Jensen supports the Computer History Museum, a Mountain View, California, institution that celebrates and preserves the computer’s history through programs and exhibits.

The Computer History Museum recently opened an exhibit entitled Thinking Big: Ada, Countess of Lovelace, which celebrates the bicentennial birthday of Ada Lovelace, a British mathematician considered one of history’s first computer programmers. Launched as part of the museum’s yearlong celebration of Lovelace, the exhibit features high-quality facsimiles of the mathematician’s papers, including journals, mathematical notes, and letters to other prominent thinkers of her era.

Visitors of the exhibit will have the unique opportunity to view the materials outside of Oxford’s Bodleian Libraries, which has never before released them publicly. The Computer History Museum will maintain the Ada Lovelace exhibit through December 11, 2016. For more information visit www.computerhistory.org.
