Two cheers for Alan Turing

I am interrupting my multi-part series of blog posts on conspiracy theories to share this report by James Vincent (via The Verge), which is titled “The UK’s new £50 note celebrates Alan Turing with lots of geeky Easter eggs.” As it happens, I am a huge fan of Alan Turing, and even wrote a paper in his honor, “The Turing Test and the Legal Process“, during one of my trips to Tortola in the British Virgin Islands–shout out to my wife’s generous cousin Omonike Robinson-Pickering for hosting us during our many stays in the BVI. (By the way, a law professor at the University of Houston, Seth Chandler, once wrote a really mean-spirited and vindictive review of my Turing Test paper when I was going up for tenure. I will track down his nasty review and post it here soon.)

  1. I understand academia is competitive, such a brutal critique right as you were going up for tenure?

    I understand refuting ideas that one disagrees with. Judging by the account detailed above this kind of crosses a few lines and was far beyond a friendly disagreement.
