George Boole’s 200th Birthday Today

Just spotted this on Google :

Apparently if he was still alive he’d be 200 today :

George Boole (2 November 1815 – 8 December 1864) was an English mathematician, educator, philosopher and logician. He worked in the fields of differential equations and algebraic logic, and is best known as the author of The Laws of Thought which contains Boolean algebra.

Or for laymen, he’s a major contributor to the “stuff” that goes into computers (and some electronics), without him we’d probably still be using abacuses !
