Joan Clarke Murray codebreaker at Bletchley Park during World War II, became deputy head of Hut 8 in 1944. Code breaking was almost exclusively done by men during the war. Clarke was paid less than the men and felt that she was prevented from progressing further because of her gender. She was a English cryptanalyst and numismatist. You have Joan and the women of Bletchley Park to thank for changing the History of the World AND the fact that you’re reading this on a computer!

Joan Clarke, the cryptanalyst war-heroine, and the women of Bletchley Park (you never heard of)

Heroes come in various forms. #BenedictCumberbatch is Alan Turing in The #ImitationGame.

The Imitation Game on

Heroes come in various forms. #BenedictCumberbatch is Alan Turing in The #ImitationGame.

Alan Turing, the man who broke the enigma code during WWII, is estimated to have shortened the war by over two years, and to have saved over 14 million lives. He was later charged for his homosexuality and was forced to undergo chemical castration.

The Imitation Game - great story, and BC is just brilliant as Alan Turing. Who ever want to see a moving which is based on a true story; Take this one!

Benedict Cumberbatch, The Imitation Game. This movie is so moving and beautiful! Yet, it was really tragic and sad to see how Alan Turing was treated. I was shocked to have never have heard about him before this movie. Why aren't they teaching us about him? Alan Turing was brilliant
