Very interesting article (especially as you get down about half-way, predictability and privacy on a server.

Maybe the Logos PC model will not last, being overcome by communicative changes.  

Plus I'd think the challenge at Logos for good people that can see down the road (sophisticated analytics, delivery, visual displays, etc) will be immense.

Okie, dokie, back to finding the northwest corner of the early temple.  Maybe early-ish.

Teleporting? ... Beam me up, Scotty?

That's hard to say, since the definition being used demands matter not actually move.  I think Scotty moved.  

Well, anyway, if he didn't move, I got the whole Star Trek thing wrong.

Thanks for the BBC article, MJ.  Hot subject!

As I recall, you were de-atomized (ie blown apart at the atomic level), and a fax of you was sent to the other station, where the atoms were re-assembled. You would basically be destroyed and re-created each time the transporter transported you.

So I guess technically speaking, you don't actually move in startrek, rather you are scanned, then you lose molecular cohesion, and finally a 3d printer spits out a new copy of you at the intended destination.
