Alan Turing

July 13, 2012 in Computer Science

 

We’ve been indexing the (cumulative) page view counts of wikipedia for a while now. The pattern seems to be entertainment related pages (movies in particular). But to my surprise today I noticed that Alan Turing was 18th! Above Justin┬áBieber (at 26) and Tom Cruise (at 27th)!!
