Britain apologies to Alan Turing

The official site of the UK Prime Minister's office just published Gordon Brown's apologies to Alan Turing.

Kind of them to finally recognize the contribution and inhumane treatment of this great man without who I might not have worked in IT (and might speak German as well).

Thanks Alan.

And when I think about the changes in the society in the past 60 years, I can't help to feel lucky, happy, and somewhat scared that this could regress pretty quickly... We've still a long road ahead though.
