    Alan Turing's 100th birthday

    The BBC are running a series of articles this week to celebrate what would have been Alan Turing's 100th birthday, starting with an essay by Vint Cerf.

    There's a lot of political back and forth over Turing, but I don't think anyone could argue that what happened was tragic, for Turing and for computing. He deserved better, and seeing the ongoing rise in recognition he's receiving warms the heart.

    Not that I'm aware of, just an essay a day on that link.

    Also: Ars have a story on Turing as well
