In the News Earlier this week, it was time for the Association for Computing Machinery, ACM, to announce the winner of the 2009 Turing Award, one of the more prestigious prices in the computing industry. The award was awarded to Charles P. Thacker; a name you might not recognise, but certainly one that has influenced the world of computing a great deal.

Tom: Turing Award, one of the more prestigious prices.

That's news! Please name an equally or more prestigious price in the field of computers.

IOCCC? ;)
Seriously, he says the "more prestigious", this means more prestigious than the last prize mentioned.
Which if I remember correctly is the Nobel Peace Prize (to be awarded to Linux Torvalds).
I think we can all agree with Thom.
