Alan Turing had a lot to do with the success of that effort. But he was a homosexual. The British Government arrested him and chemically castrated him for it. British computer scientist John Graham-Cumming thinks it’s time for the British Government to apologize. His petition has been noticed by the BBC and CNN. Cameron Buckner thinks the world should be heard.

I am enthusiastic about this idea, but for one thing. You should not have to be a genius to be treated with dignity.
