Saw another new post about Bletchley park getting a grant to fund restoration efforts and new exhibits. As a techie and a student of history, Bletchley park and Building 26 have always been fascinating to me. This is where Turing (of Turing Machine fame) got his start. This is where the modern computer was born. This is where thousands of lives were saved by cracking codes during WWII. Great stuff.
Some interesting links found on Boing Boing today:
