Just checking - yesterday was Alan Turing's birthday! I missed it with all the other stuff going on, but it's a cool thing to think about. I spent a lot of years considering Turing tests and such, so it's interesting to see the day come by. Now I have to watch out for Vannevar Bush, John von Neumann, and Grace Hopper's birthday (I remember when she passed away - I still try to carry around NanoSeconds. You may have heard me talk about them.) We really do stand on the shoulders of giants.
