I would say it is many people, rather than just one. I wrote "On
Complexity and Emergence" in response to the amount of unmitigated
tripe I've seen written about these topics.


Russel,

I have read your paper

http://arxiv.org/abs/nlin/0101006

It is well written. Could you please apply the principles from your paper to a problem on how to determine information in a book (for example let us take your book Theory of Nothing)?

Also do you believe earnestly that this information is equal to the thermodynamic entropy of the book? If yes, can one determine the information in the book just by means of experimental thermodynamics?

Evgenii

P.S. Why it is impossible to state that a random string is generated by some random generator?
