Beginning Monday, November 15, 2004 until March 2005, C-SPAN will televise live a series of discussions hosted by the Library of Congress' John W. Kluge Center. The series will examine how the digital age is changing the most basic ways information is organized and classified. The goal is to educate the public on the what the digital age means to their lives. The events will include a featured speaker, followed by a panel discussion, and a question and answer session with the audience at the venue, and C-SPAN television viewers. Our viewers will be invited to email questions to the experts.

Monday, January 24 at 6:30pm ET

Juan Pablo Paz, a quantum physicist from Buenos Aires, currently working at Los Alamos. He will discuss how quantum computing, now in its development stages, will eventually change again the way we collect, store and distribute information.

You can also email questions to the live panel (digital@loc.gov) hosted by the Library of Congress to be answered on-air. This should be an interesting discussion. Be certain to post here if you submit a question.

The presentation is on CSPAN now. Pretty interesting factiod that at today's densities, 1 bit takes 100,000,000,000 atoms. The speaker made a pretty good joke, "No information without representation."
