Very nice. I kind of wonder what went on during his Phd at Princton. Turing and Von Neumann were there at the same time and Turing was consulting with him while working on his Phd. I would imagine they had some very interesting conversations (to be fly in that room…..). Both had hugely outsized impacts on both the war and on the birth of the computer as we know it.
Excellent perspective articulated well. There always has to be hope. Perhaps millennial have too much hope that things will work out on their own. I recently wrote about an epiphany of my own about the importance of faith, hope, and courage. Mostly courage.
