All about Donald Knuth, the computer science legend extraordinaire.
Wikipedia states 'Knuth has been called the "father" of the analysis of algorithms', but he has done so much more in his life.
- Knuth had a Christian upbringing, and published a book called '3:16' that delved into the Bible - by random sampling (examining chapter 3/verse 16 of each book in the bible)
- He developed the TeX system (I am writing my project report in LaTeX)
This man is inspirational, and as a Christian Computer Scientist, he has made my day. :-)
