Gordon Brown has apologized to Alan Turing on behalf of the British government.


Way to go. [Applause]

Oh, yeah? What about Oscar Wilde? [Wink]

edit: I'm gonna start my own petition -- I'm gonna demand that Robert Smith apologise for the sacking of Rome. (Well, they were goths, weren't they?)

____ Snaggy, what the fine people that lived in code did was just short of unbelievable. No computers or very poor ones by todays standards, and only samples of the enemies code to work from. The fact that they did break any thing speaks volumes. Maybe thats why that the US used a new language (North American Indian) to confuse the Japanese. Its one thing to break code but to start with a new language? Alan Turing did not deserve the treatment he received.

Fine news indeed. The world is still a worse place for AMT's untimely death (I wonder what might have happened in computer science if he'd lived to a normal age?)...but I appreciate Mr Brown's statement.

No one deserves to be treated like that. Not Alan Turing, not Oscar Wilde, not the millions of people who suffer (some albeit to a lessor degree) deserve such treatment.
