On Bits and Pieces

How Information and Matter Are Similar

The Call for Papers for SIGINT 2010 claims that "the world of atoms and the world of bits operate on completely different levels.". Of course there is some truth to this claim. However, if we think about society and its future it is also a wrong claim in interesting ways.

First the talk compares matter and information as concepts where they are different. It then moves on to the societal question and outlines why production is the common denominator of information and matter. Finally the talk considers a few implications for the future.
