+ - "Nobel Prize in Computing" goes to distributed computing wrangler Leslie Lamport->

Submitted by alphadogg
alphadogg (971356) writes "Leslie Lamport, a Microsoft Research principal, has been named the winner of the 2013 ACM A.M. Turing Award, http://amturing.acm.org/ also known as the “Nobel Prize in Computing.” The computer scientist was recognized by the Association for Computing Machinery for “imposing clear, well-defined coherence on the seemingly chaotic behavior of distributed computing systems, in which several autonomous computers communicate with each other by passing messages.” His algorithms, models and verification systems have enabled distributed computer systems to play the key roles they’re used in throughout the data center, security and cloud computing landscapes."
