He was already outed, forced to plead guilty to gross indecency, chemically castrated, and had the security clearances that he needed for government work revoked. They pretty much destroyed him.Finally.
A very tragic hero.
Did he not commit suicide by eating a poisoned apple because he was concerned about being outted? My heart breaks whenever I hear things like this.
If indeed the above is true, it is a truly horrible waste of genius and creativity due to ignorance and intolerance. I pray it never ever happens again.
I know, I am being naive....
Definitely a small gesture, and probably the most fitting gesture one could expect, given that respecting people while they live is often still too much to ask.The man who saved and made modern civilisation was horribly treated during his life. This is fitting gesture, a small gesture considering what he did for the world.
RIP Mr Turing...
It's his birth date, apparently.Has anyone deciphered that binary code yet?
