A Conversation for Tommy Flowers - Technical Innovator

Unsung heroes

Post 1


There is something heart-wrenching about unsung heroes. I have always thought that Alan Turing would be as much a household name as Einstein if he had been American instead of British; and would have had a long life of fame instead of death in dishonour and obscurity fifty years ago.

And this is the first I have ever heard of Tommy Flowers. Respect.

If no one else reads this, I have made at least one other person aware of Tommy Flowers. Respect to you too.

Delicia - The world's acutest kitten

Tommy the Technician sounds a very interesting fellow to me! Is one of the most exciting contemporary biographies i've seen, thanks for that.

"He seems to have been a practical child, when told of the arrival of a baby sister he declared a preference for a 'Meccano2' set."
