Also the von neumann architecture, underpinning fundamentally how we build computers. I'm not sure a compiler is a feasible program without a stored program architecture - just to illustrate the gravity of that one contribution.

If you're interested, Stanislaw Ulam (a von Neumann contempory/associate) wrote a very good autobiography back in 1983. There was a recentish biography of John Conway, too, which I really enjoyed .

The Von Neumann probe is the inspiration for one of my favorite audio book series: Bobiverse.

I really enjoy reading about von Neumann, even though it makes me feel like an insignificant particle in time and space.

Who knew reading about a mathematician could be so funny....

Next up, I am reading a book about Erdos

I am now. Thanks.
