Can't resist expanding on MC's reference to Enigma.
This man, Alan Turing, was a genius by any measure, and should be a household name in the same way that Bill Gates and Steve Jobs are, since Turing is the father of modern computing as we know it.
Gates and Jobs on the other hand are, respectively, a man who built an OS on the back of all the work done by the US military and others (including Turing), then did some very clever business deals, and a man that added some bells and whistles to a telephone...
Jus sayin
