Thank tom for this interesting article.

Here are Djikstra's comments on his struggle to decide between a career as a computer programmer, versus one as a theoretical physicist (and, let's be honest here, the latter is not that much different from theoretical mathematics--both employ extraordinarily counterintuitive abstract mathematical models....)

So, exactly what is the Turing award, and how are the nominees evaluated?

ACM's most prestigious technical award is accompanied by a prize of $100,000. It is given to an individual selected for contributions of a technical nature made to the computing commu­nity. The contributions should be of lasting and major technical importance to the computer field. Financial support of the Turing Awards is provided by the Intel Corporation.

Hmm..... Intel.....
hmm....
