As Felix knows, I strongly disagree with all of this. In the recent volume
"Alan Turing: Life and Legacy of a Great Thinker" Christof Teuscher, Ed.,
Springer 2004, see my paper "The Myth of Hypercomputation." In the same
volume see Andrew Hodges' s paper, "What Would Turing Have Done after 1954?"
Copies of my paper are available by email on request in PDF or DVI format.
The same volume contains a number of articles taking the opposite position.
