Release date: 17.01.2020

In honour of: Joan Clarke

Every release we honour a person, activist, scientists, artist, politician who significantly contributed to humanity's progress


Joan Elisabeth Lowther Murray, MBE (née Clarke; 24 June 1917 – 4 September 1996) was an English cryptanalyst and numismatist best known for her work as a code-breaker at Bletchley Park during the Second World War. Although she did not personally seek the spotlight, her role in the Enigma project that decrypted Nazi Germany's secret communications earned her awards and citations, such as appointment as a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE), in 1946

Joan was chiefly involved into cracking the encryption of the Nazis during WW2 which is more often attributed to Alan Touring, the name-giver of Memex 1.2.

We chose her as the name-giver of Memex Go 1.0 because we are so proud of bringing you an end2end encrypted sync between Memex and Memex Go as a baseline for all further developments towards your data ownership.
