A new interview with our member of the Scientific Board and author of the recently commented book on Spinoza, Rainer Zimmemann, has been recently published in BITagora. The interview was conducted by J.M. Díaz, who met our colleague Zimmermann on the ocassion of his 60th birthday in Vienna, where both took part in a Meeting of the Bertalanffy Center for the Study of System Science chaired by Wolfgang Hofkirchner. In the interview they deal with foundational questions with respect to the purposes of BITrum, regarding the nature of information, its place in the skeleton-of-the-universe, and fully interdisciplinar as the role of philosophy, mathematical modelling and ethics... (see interview). 

We kindly invite BITrum colleagues to make contributions (interviews, books reviews, gathering reports, thematic proposals) in the issues of their interest. BITagora –fruit of the collaboration of the Science of Information Institute with BITrum- aims at bringing at stage fundamental questions and stances concerning groundings of the Science of Information as an effective trans-disciplinary field. As previously informed, contributions to BITagora will also be published in a special section of TripleC.
