In the News The BBC reports on a Turing scholar's recent claims that by today's standard of evidence, there's reason to doubt the commonly-held belief that the famed computing pioneer committed suicide in response to government persecution over his homosexuality. To be clear, he does not claim to have disproved the suicide theory -- only that the cyanide poisoning that killed Turing could well have been an accident caused by his careless at-home experimentation with dangerous chemicals.

Indeed, it does happens on all humans activities like painting, sculpture, literature, architecture, engineering, medicine and so on, but I was talking specifically about very, very special beings that helped transform our world and got recognized as heroes by some of us. Turing already achieved that, even more because he as able flex his talent when the need was there.

We are like 7 billion now, and the number of people that lived is astonishing. There is no other way to pay the deserved respect and tribute to the memory of ours very best other than learning and teaching how human knowledge advances and foster the quality of our life.

Unluckily, there is no infinity memory.
