Ever heard of George Boole?

From Peter Dewrance:

I have written elsewhere about the father of digital technology, George Boole, maths genius and son of a Lincoln cobbler, who had his own school near Lincoln Cathedral. Dave Kenyon, co-founder of the Lincoln Boole Foundation has been in touch about another success in his campaign to raise awareness of this great thinker. Dave writes:

The Lincoln Boole Foundation is pleased to announce the upcoming installation of a large commemorative plaque in the centre of Lincoln at the junction of High Street and Silver Street, just yards from Boole’s birthplace. This high-profile memorial has been given the blessing of both City and County authorities. Its size and position will make it arguably the highest profile memorial plaque in the city – as befits the inventor of digital logic.

The plaque will be installed in time for Boole’s bicentenary and there will be an ‘unveiling ceremony’ at 3pm on November 2nd (his actual birthday). Please feel free to come along (it’s outside, so wrap up warm!)

If you can’t attend, please visit the memorial when you can, take a snap and circulate it. Let’s stick the results onto social media and get a meme going. Make George proud!
