Member Skype #30 – ‘The Library of Babel’ by Jorge Luis Borges

Is access to an infinite supply of information necessarily a good thing? How many of us can actually remember when we first connected to 'the internet'? Why would any person fear the permanent storage of 'personal data'? And what does any of this have to do with an obscure Argentinian fiction writer who died decades ago?

Joining me to discuss these questions and more was an eclectic panel of interlocutors, who each read Borges' seven-page short story The Library of Babel prior to the call :)
