JACQUARD'S LOOM and the stored programme concept - The Jacquard loom was invented by Joseph Marie Jacquard in Lyon in 1801 to weave textiles, mainly silk.  It stored  weaving programmes in a series of punched cards. In a process that was very reminiscent of that once used to create computer programs a design would be drawn on paper and a punch card machine  would be used to create a set of cards. These were then stitched together.
