The Olympic Opening Ceremony

Did you see the Olympic opening ceremony? then you might have seen Tim burners-Lee sitting at a computer when the house was lifted up! did you know that he was actualy sending Tweets when he was there?

Alan Turing

If Alan Turing hadnt lived then we wouldnt have had code cracking machiens and we wouldnt have computers today! Alan Turing helped us win the war as he made machienes that cracked the german codes that were being sent. He also helped to make the first computers! Sadly he died before he could see what impact his computers made on the modern world.
