” What’s happened with society is that we have created these devices, computers, which already can register and process huge amounts of information, which is a significant fraction of the amount of information that human beings themselves, as a species, can process. “


” The amount of information that can be stored by the ultimate laptop, 10 to the 31st bits, is much higher than the 10 to the 10th bits stored on current laptops. “


” There are considerable advantages to using many degrees of freedom to store information, stability and controllability being perhaps the most important. “


” In order to figure out how to make atoms compute, you have to learn how to speak their language and to understand how they process information under normal circumstances. “


” Every physical system registers information, and just by evolving in time, by doing its thing, it changes that information, transforms that information, or, if you like, processes that information. “


” Merely by existing and evolving in time – by existing – any physical system registers information, and by evolving in time it transforms or processes that information. “


” All physical systems can be thought of as registering and processing information, and how one wishes to define computation will determine your view of what computation consists of. “
