Happy Birthday Alan Turing, the computer scientist and pioneer of cryptography exploitation - he was born on this day in 1912. His historic papers and work are synonymous to many in the computing science fields, Turing was persecuted by the British government for being gay and poisoned himself tragically at the age of 41. No other life has helped shape the world we live in today as beautifully and no one should ever forget the fate men like him suffered at the hands of the UK state.

@hackerfantastic The story of this man makes me so angry everytime I get reminded of it! Such a great person and treated like garbage by his very own government.
