    A very long recounting of Stephen Hawking's recent talk on Black Holes and the concept of lost information with actual text from the event. It is beyond me and I am in awe of people who can ponder as they do.

    There are two aspects to reading such a talk. One is trying to grasp the concepts, and the other is trying to grasp the terminology. He's uses terms that he assumes his audience is familiar with. [​IMG]
