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

Speakers include +Quentin Hardy, +DJ Patil, +danah boyd and +Hal Varian.

To get a licence to drive one of London's black cabs, drivers have to go through an intense intellectual ordeal, called The Knowledge. They have to memorise the 25,000 streets within six miles of Charing Cross, the locations of 20,000 landmarks, and 320 routes that connect everything up.

Here's what happens to their brains when they gain The Knowledge.
