The driving force behind modern computers, Alan Turing was born a hundred years ago.  He launched the digital age, founded the fields of computer science and artificial intelligence,   and helped the British win WWII by cracking the Nazi "Enigma" codes.  He was persecuted by British authorities for the crime of being homosexual, and committed suicide at age 41.  His life ended tragically, but his brilliance lives in the computers we use every day.  We celebrate the Alan Turing Year.
