Tommy Flowers : Colossus

Great to see the late Tommy Flowers getting the recognition he deserves, a man who because of secrecy and lack of vision was never fully appreciated in the UK.

This brilliant new video on Colossus explains the story..

This blog post by Lynette coincides with the opening of a new Gallery at the National Museum of Computing featuring the rebuilt Colossus computer itself the product of the amazing effort of Tony Sale.

I spent an amazing hour with Tony a few years ago, before his death last year, as he showed me around the Colossus, I imagine Tommy was similar .. a quiet unassuming man who changed the world.
