New and Noteworthy (The Limits of Computing, Appraising the Singularity)

In today's edition:

* This week's article at Strange Horizons looks at the limits of computation.

* In a related vein, a panel "appraising the Singularity," which was moderated by Alastair Reynolds and included Vernor Vinge (the coiner of the term in his novel Marooned in Realtime, and his seminal 1993 paper on the subject), Karl Schroeder, and Charles Stross. (The video of the discussion is available at, among other places, Charlie's Diary.)
