This "question" is probably off topic for even meta because
- it's not a question really
- and it's not directly related to TeX or the site, but...
I thought I'd mention that Leslie Lamport (creator of LaTeX) just won the Turing award for his work in distributed computing. This is the second TeX giant (after Knuth) to win a Turing award (neither of them for their work on *-TeX alas).
