This month is the 100th anniversary of Alan Turing's Birth. It's also the 58th anniversary of his tragic death. So today we're going to celebrate the father of modern computing and the one of the key architects of the allied victory in World War 2. We're going to learn about his life and his accomplishments and also the events that lead up his death by suicide in 1954.

Come and join us for lively discussion, drinks, dinner and debate! This is a good event for Skeptics of Michigan to come together and discuss local, national, worldwide items affecting skeptics. All are welcome to listen and participate.

Please be sure to RSVP so I know how many are coming. That way I can modify the reservation if necessary.

I hope to see you all there!

    Much thanks to Adam for putting together such informative presentation on the fascinating life of Alan Turing who is founder of computer science, mathematician, philosopher, codebreaker, strange visionary and a gay man before his time, but was not accorded recognition for his achievements by a society of his time when his sexual orientation became known.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
