    Are there any candidates or clues as to who ‘Richard’ was, or if it might be a pseudonym?

  3. Coderjoe says:

    Is there any chance that the papers can be scanned and released online? I would hate for something that is supposed to be in the “public domain” to still be locked up inside some museum.

  4. If you’re a U.K citizen or live in the U.K. sign the petition to have Turing’s conviction for “gross indecency” (he had sex with another man) pardoned by the British government. Turing helped win WWII when he broke the Nazi’s “Enigma” code and invented the modern computer. He committed suicide by taking cyanide in 1954 after having undergone government-ordered chemical castration for his “crime”.
