2012 Alan Turing Year

The year 2012 is Alan Turing year, Turing was born on the 23rd of June in 1912. And of course, because of:
"There isn't a discipline in science that Turing has not had an impact upon."
Considering the 20th century was the year that computers were 'born', which mathematician will be remembered as the foremost one of that century, in say 300 or more years? What I particularly like about Alan Turing is that his papers are so -accessible-. By an undergraduate, at least. Turing was the first programmer and the first hacker: he cracked the German Enigma which changed the course of WW2. The story of his life reads like a thriller, a film noir perhaps.

More, in the course of 2012.

Mathematics: is it the fabric of MEST?
This is my voyage
My continuous mission
To uncover hidden structures
To create new theorems and proofs
To boldly go where no man has gone before

(Raumpatrouille – Die phantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffes Orion, colloquially aka Raumpatrouille Orion was the first German science fiction television series. Its seven episodes were broadcast by ARD beginning September 17, 1966. The series has since acquired cult status in Germany. Broadcast six years before Star Trek first aired in West Germany (in 1972), it became a huge success.)
