Book: The Government Machine: A revolutionary history of the computer, by Jon Agar

I have been reading this book by a colleague at UCL, a historian of technology.  It examines the interrelationship between thinking about technology, and the development of the computer, and the organization and reorganization of the UK civil service.  It's a pretty illuminating way of thinking about both issues.  Might be of interest to other philosophers of information.

CfP: Turing in Context II

This meeting is the second Turing in Context event during the 2012 Turing centennial. The first was held at King's College, Cambridge, 18-19 February 2012. It was an outreach event for the general academic public with invited speakers only. Turing in Context II is a research meeting meant for experts in the fields touched by Turing's contributions to science.
