Alan Turing Honored in Snow Bust

Turing1 Turing2_1

He’s the father of modern computing and was a tragically persecuted gay man. He also has a fan club that lingers into the 21st century, as evidenced by this homage from Albuquerque, New Mexico, where they actually have snow (we haven’t seen a flake yet here in New York, it’s very strange).

In any case, add this to the Alan Turing Halloween tribute and the Manchester park statue and you’ve got quite a collection.

    Don’t forget Matmos’s (‘music concrete’ pioneers who happen also to be gay) commission by the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute called “A Musical Enigma: Matmos Meets Turing” to commemorate Turing’s pioneering work.
