James Gleick - The Information

Thursday, March 24, 2011 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm
We live in the Information Age—but what exactly does that mean? Gleick, author of Chaos and Genius, looks back to the earliest information technologies, tracing the route from talking drums to alphabets, Morse code to computer languages, punch cards to the Internet. Along the way he profiles the inventors and visionaries involved and charts how the various machines have altered human consciousness itself.
