A link: Hawking and Information Loss

Since the news media are making such a big deal out of Hawking's recent pronouncement that he's now convinced information is not lost in black holes, let me link to the blog entry I've liked most on the topic: this one by Jacques Distler. (In short, Hawking's calculation seems to be something that is well known in string theory, done in his own [somewhat eccentric, and controversial] framework.)

And now, expect me to not be heard from for ten days or so, unless I unexpectedly have Internet access in Colorado.
