Manchester has long recognised Alan Turing's place in history

People power pays off! (sometimes…)

Following pressure from a number of people, and as highlighted on Andy Holroyd’s blog amongst others, the UK government has finally seen fit to issue a posthumous apology to Alan Turing.

I won’t blather on here, but for those of you who don’t know who Turing was, or what influence he had over our everyday lives, please read the article, or use a search engine that wouldn’t have existed without his work, to find out more about him.
