An extraordinary man : Alan Turing!

Alan Turing was an English mathematician, logician and cryptographer.
Turing is often considered to be the father of modern computer science.
He found a number of techniques for breaking German ciphers which permitted to win the World War II because he decrypted messages from electromechanical machine called Enigma machine.
It was unfortunate, it was obliged to take treatment for his homosexuality, so he is commited by eating an apple poisoned, like in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, because he loved this Walt Diney.
I admire this man for his engineering.
He could bring so much to compuer science, he was still so young only about 30 years.
