This Week in Ubiquity:

Volume 8, Issue 7

February 20, 2007 -- February 26, 2007


Albert Borgmann, who has been described as as the most rigorous and
original philosopher of technology in the world, says: "The world no
longer has a central point, neither on this planet nor in the
cosmos. Everyday life and especially festive occasions on earth
still reveal traces and recollections of focal points, of the college
we attended, the place we got married, the capital where a new
president is installed. It's the universe that impresses radical
pointlessness on us." And where do we go from there?

We go to his fascinating article, "Cyberspace, Cosmology and the
Meaning of Life," which you'll find in this week's Ubiquity,
