Submission + - Radiolab on The Turing Problem (

dooling writes: "WNYC's Radiolab has a "short" on the life and times of Alan Turing, specifically how his personal life may have informed his thoughts on machines. A relevant discussion given the recent refusal of the UK government to give Turing a posthumous pardon for "acts of gross indecency between men, in public or private." As usual, Radiolab treats the subject in an entertaining and informative manner."
