The Death of Alan Turing

A mathematical genius whose contribution to our lives goes largely unnoticed. Yet without him, you wouldn't be reading this on my blog, nor emailing nor tweeting.

A proud gay man in a time when being so, was criminal. He suffered the consequences and his historic legacy was quashed by the establishment at the time.

His apparent suicide by a cyanide laced apple (how gay was that?) has been rumored to have been encouraged by Scotland Yard.
