If information wants to be free, then that's true everywhere, not just in information technology.
Space and time, not proteins and neurons, hold the answer to the problem of consciousness. When we consider the nerve impulses entering the brain, we realize that they are not woven together automatically, any more than the information is inside a computer.
Much historical fiction that centers on real people has always been deficient in information, lacking in craft and empty in affect.
History is a facsimile of events held together by finally biographical information.
The critic is the only independent source of information. The rest is advertising.
If you think of the ideas of open source applied to information in an encyclopedia, you get to Wikipedia - lots and lots of small contributions that bubble up to something that's meaningful.

Nassim Nicholas Taleb
It was what became something of a pattern in the first couple of years of the Clinton White House and maybe even longer, where information would drip, drip, drip, drip, drip out which would keep stories alive, alive, alive.

President Clinton intentionally created a structure that was a little loose. And one that kept him a little in the center. He didn't want one person filtering all the information that went to him. He had always operated with a lot of information coming in and a lot of stuff going out.

The liberties and freedoms which we hold dear and we recognize and cherish and respect guide the way we gather information in the United States.
Desert Storm was seen by the military establishment and by some politicians as avenging Vietnam, but it left behind dangerous illusions.
