    Now, I'm not sure whether this should go onto serious or not. I'll let the mods decide if it's in the wrong section.

    There's currently a petition going on regarding the production of new bank notes. The current design may be changed and the petition pushes for Alan Turing to be depicted on the new £10 note.

    I personally feel it would be fantastic for a hero of computing to be depicted on one of the most widespread items in the nation. Of course, I'd love to hear your receptions to this petition.

    Would be fitting for the government to acknowledge his achievements, especially considering the ordeals he was put through.

    It really doesn't matter what you put on the notes, no one pays attention to them and I doubt that anyone would notice the difference!

    I'm sure you'd be happy if you were put on a bank note, you're just too ugly. :D :p

    Anyway, Alan Turning? Hell yes!
