        Subject: from quantum physics to digital humanities

It remains to be seen how long and complex the path is to machines on 
our desks (or wherever they then are) from the work of Serge Haroche of 
France and David Wineland of the US, who just won a joint Nobel Prize 
for preserving the quantum character of particles while manipulating 
them. But the fact that there is a connection may be worth thinking 
about. For those who like to follow events on very distant intellectual 
galaxies, see

Yours,
WM
