Well done to Prof Furber for a genuine contribution to the industry, which has resulted in the most sucessful processor architecture on the planet.

Its just a same that head of HMRC whos contribuition to British IT was overseeing the loss of 25 million people's records in the post, also gets the same honour.

Just gos to show we still reward patronage over acheivement everytime. So its no wonder we've given Cambridge to Microsoft and Intel to suck in and stamp down the sort of talented innovaters that created Acorn and ARM.
