Who Begat Computing?
The Turing Centenary with its furious pace
is now behind us and we can afford some
reflection on what has transpired. What
started as an idea that the centenary of one
of the founding figures of computing
should be celebrated has turned into a
global social phenomenon. A quick perusal of the Turing Centenary Web page
(http://www.turingcentenary.eu/) reveals an amazing explosion of meetings,
lectures, exhibitions, and volumes.
