Blacklaw writes “Auction house Christie’s is planning to sell offprints of Alan Turing’s early work for an estimated £500,000 — and the fight has begun to raise the money so UK codebreaking museum and charity Bletchley Park can house the documents in the building where Turing performed his war-winning work and birthed the concept of a modern ‘universal computer.’ If the money isn’t raised, the papers could disappear into a private archive, never to be seen again.”
