Is matter digital?
Richard Jones recently wrote a blog post ending with the statement, "Matter is not digital."
Jones was responding to Eric Drexler's statement to the NAS that, just as computers are amazingly useful general-purpose computation machines (e.g. capable of displaying movies), molecular manufacturing could lead to general-purpose manufacturing systems making a very large range of products.
