Geek stuff, sci-fi... The Cambridge University mathematician laid the foundation for the invention of software. As part of its anniversary celebration, BusinessWeek is presenting a series of weekly profiles for the greatest innovators of the past 75 years. Some made their mark in science or technology; others in management, finance, marketing, or government. In late September, 2004, BusinessWeek will publish a special commemorative issue on Innovation. Elsewhere, there is also a special article for Turing.

I think it's sad too Pinko. Every time Turing crosses my mind it's make me real angry,I try to turn it into action instead though.
He did more than most people to nail the nazis and just got procecuted and humiliated of those bloody english authoroties.
He took his life 42 years old.
