[Computational Complexity] An Auction of Computing History
From Ryan O'Donnell
Christie's is auctioning off a bunch of documents related to the history of computing.
A '46 IAS report by von Neumann and others to the US Army on the concept of a computer is expected to go for around $35k, an original copy of Turing's "On computable numbers" for about $17.5k, a letter from Gödel to Skolem for about $15k, Shannon's collected works for about $10k, etc.
