InfoStory Quotes: Power of Information?

“A consideration of the effects of information storage and information transfer on physical, chemical biological, psychological, and sociological systems… may help in understanding and predicting many of the aspects of our universe” – American Scientist, 1950

“If only a logic of information, rather than the logic of humanity, is taken into account, then all…other aspects remain invisible. And futurists, while raging against the illogic of humankind and the primitive preferences that lead it astray, will continue to tell us where we ought to go. By taking more account of people and a little less of information, they might instead tell us where we are going, which would be more difficult but also more helpful” – John Seely Brown and Paul Duguid, The Social Life of Information, 2000.
