John Graham-Cumming is an English programmer well-known in tech circles for his creativity, playfulness and audacity. He is best known for having led the successful campaign to get the British goverment to apologize posthumously for persecuting Alan Turing after World War II.
In addition to his full-time job, he is currently running a non-profit organization with the goal of building Charles Babbage's Analytical Engine, the world's first computer, which Babbage designed in 1837 but never built. He is also the author of The Geek Atlas, a 544-page travel book for nerds, and maintains a popular blog on his website.
How does he do it? Where does he get the ideas? In a talk to the Hacker News London Meetup, Graham-Cumming provides the kernel of an answer.
