    Hey, I went to your Science Live talk in Oxford. It was awesome. I wanted to ask you a question, but because I had already asked Steve Jones a question, I decided not to. What do you think of fractals? Alan Turing was working on something to do with them. I find Alan Turing quite interesting. Have you ever read anything by Richard Harris? He wrote a book called Enigma, which is like an alternate history thing. It’s really good. Just though I’d ask.

    Geesh. I’ve only just found your comment. I’ve not read Harris. On the other hand Andrew Hodges’ biography of Turing, The Enigma, is excellent and completely fascinating. Well worth reading. I’m not sure how to answer your question about fractals, though.
