I haven’t read the book yet, but after watching The Imitation Game, I am most moved by the reminder to appreciate the myriad of “anonymous” people who have had a huge influence upon our lives.

In the movie, the powerful quote at the beginning of this blog was originated by a boy who died of Tuberculosis. If not for his mark upon Alan Turing, World War II and computer science would most likely be a different tale.

There is no greater injustice than that of ignoring the profound contributions made by those we profoundly ignore.
