[Nettime-bold] 2001 Turing Award

From: "Gary Chapman" <>

Dear friends,

I'm happy to pass on the news that the 2001 Turing Award, the highest 
award in computer science, has been awarded to Johan Dahl and Kristen 
Nygaard of Norway, for their invention of object-oriented 
programming, the most widely used programming paradigm in the world 

The formal citation of the award is on the Web at The Association 
for Computing Machinery will present the A.M. Turing Award, its most 
prestigious technical honor, at the annual ACM Awards Banquet on 
April 27, 2002, at the University of Toronto in Canada.

It has been my privilege and honor to serve on the selection 
committee for the Turing Award, in a group of five people, and I am 
particularly pleased by this year's award. Congratulations, Kristen!

Best to all,

-- Gary
