Merge proposal: from Light-speed silicon chip[edit]

A strange pop-sci article on an IBM optical bit led to an even stranger WP article. To the extend that it has something to say, it should be here at optical interconnect. Dicklyon (talk) 22:58, 19 October 2011 (UTC)

done. Dicklyon (talk) 22:14, 22 October 2011 (UTC)

I don't understand the change. I, the original author, am very upset with the change and the ratings speak for the change of the article. I know it has been a couple of months but please try to explain further in depth the reason for this change. Micklan (talk) 04:50, 18 December 2011 (UTC)

The last version of your article cited two sources, niether of which mentioned anything resembling the title you chose. They were about an optical interconnect technology, so a merge seemed appropriate. The "how it works" explanation was also not very coherent, so I worked on that. What is it about this that is upsetting you? Dicklyon (talk) 05:49, 18 December 2011 (UTC)

Although I agree that the explanation was unclear before, I think that quite a bit of depth was lost in the article. I think we should refer back to the original and see if any aspects of the technology can be integrated back into this article. Micklan (talk) 18:46, 23 December 2011 (UTC)
