I didn't write the article on the Jacquard Loom & modern computing. My research led me to James Essinger's "Jacquard's Web: How a Hand-Loom Led to the Birth of the Information Age" (2007), covering connections I'd independently made.

Ohh man I see the connection how hand looms led to computing as now I recall reading Charles Babbage's speech where he talks about how computing can be done by machine as machines in industry or clothing do the exact same things. Crazy will love to read it.
