Alan Turing's birthday

It’s Alan Turing’s birthday today. For those who’ve never heard of him, he was one of the people responsible for cracking the German Enigma machine during WWII, something like the father of modern computing and unfortunately an incredibly unfairly treated human being.

Google is celebrating with a Turing machine in their doodle, here’s a haunting letter from Turing on Letters of Note and finally here’s a funkily designed but informative website detailing everything about Alan Turing.

Happy Birthday, old chum!
