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.

Read "Dealers of Lightening" [1] and tell me he didn't deserve this award.

It's an excellent book by the way.
