And the answers are...

Well... after such a spirited and pleasant debate during today's PI public lecture I end up with more questions than answers. This comes to confirm the saying that the more you know you realize how much you don't know.

Here are some ideas that I've gathered during the debate:

- physicists have defined the information around 150 years ago well before information age was born
- information is about predicting of what is next. It has to be about something and is embedded into something.
- in quantum mechanics you cannot clone information.
- is information limited by the laws of physics?
- what is the hardware/software of the Universe as a computer? What operating system is it running, who is its programmer and what is the purpose of this computer?
- what is the difference between information, data and knowledge?
- what is the future of the information age?

Stay tuned for details.
