I went to Derby last Sunday on a shopping trip, as I was waiting at the lights on a new road I noticed it's name "Lara Croft Way".

Core Design were based at Derby so the town has recognised it's fictional heroine by naming a road after her.

It got me thinking, are there any statues, roads etc in your area that are related to computers or gaming?

Hello,

Don't know if that counts, but we have a "Braunschweiggasse" (street name and metro station). It has to do with Commodore, since they had a fabrication in German city callled Braunschweig. Sadly, it's not "Commodore Streef" ;)

I think that this qualifies as computing, in a way....
