An Evening with Bletchley Park

On Monday night the Silicon Valley community gathered at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View for An Evening with Bletchley Park, hosted by Google with special guest Sir John Scarlett, Chairman of Bletchley Park Trust.

A wonderful evening was had by all, as everyone learned about Bletchley and it's unique place in the history of computing. The evening closed with a tour of Computer History Museum's excellent Revolution exhibit, and an invitation for the guests to visit Bletchley as part of November's Silicon Valley Comes to the UK later this year.

During the Second World War, Bletchley Park was the site of the United Kingdom's main decryption establishment which contributed greatly to defeating the  U-boats in the battle of the atlantic, and it currently houses the National Codes Centre and the National Museum of Computing

You should definitely go if you have a spare day in the UK at any time - you can feel the history all around you. Somehow I always seem to go when half the exhibits are shut though :-(
 
Neil Stephenson taught me all I need to know about Bletchley Park  :-)
 
Checking in, looking for pictures of Lisa in Paris! ;)

Well I work at the Googleplex in Mountain View 5 days a week +Peter Scharff, so I'm pretty close by most of the time:)
