Turing

I just found out Alan Turing’s birthday was June 23. What a weird coincidence. 

Was just looking at his Turing mug from ACM, the one they sent to celebrate one year as a member. He loved it, kept it even though the handle had broken. I opened Wikipedia and did a double take at the date section. 

(I know, I know, birthday problem) (and the birthday problem only takes 23 to be over 50% probability. It’s a near certainty that some figure of interest to him would share a significant date with the day he died.)
