Alan Turing Turns 100 Today






Alan Turing is the father of computer technology.  Without his work, you would not be reading this.

He cracked the Nazi Enigma code during World War II and saved the British bacon.

A grateful nation hounded Turing to his death for being an openly gay man, and kept his identity secret for decades.

Oh BRAVO, Doug. Alan Turing and Christopher Wren*, geniuses together, w/ the saints in light. Pray for us!
