  • Bletchley Park given a boost

    Posted on September 9th, 2008 Andy Parkes 2 comments

    Just saw this on this BBC news site

    Bletchley gets £50,000 donation

    The article is pretty comprehensive so I won’t reproduce too much of it here

    I’m planning on making a trip to check out the National Museum of Computing soon so was pleased to hear this news today

    The donations made by IBM and PGP are made with the idea it will help get some more funding to help keep the site up and running (another BBC article on the “neglect of Bletchley park” is here)

    I was given this book Colossus- Bletchley Park’s Greatest Secret as birthday present which recommend if you have any interest in computer history (it’s huge though!)

    Massive geek mode off 😉

    1. Hi Andy – a visit to the National Museum of Computing is on my “someday” to-do list too, so you’re not alone!

    2. Hi Rich

      I’m going on Saturday!

      The missus informed me we’re going to Milton Keynes to visit some friends so I’m going down early so i can pay the museum a visit!

      Expect a blog post next week 😉
