In today’s videocast, I discuss the material component of the universe and while our world, with all we do therein, is about numbers. Just as Pythagoras noted many centuries ago, about 600 BC, the world is made up of numbers. And if that is the case, we live to process and manipulate numbers. Automating that process is computing, generally branded as technology, and it is at the heart of our civilization. It brings speed, and accelerates productivity, and it continues to evolve.
