Information

Information is the currency of democracy.

Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826) Third president of the United States.

Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge? Where is the knowledge we have lost in information.

T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.

Among all the world's races, some obscure Bedouin tribes possibly apart, Americans are the most prone to misinformation. This is not the consequence of any special preference for mendacity, although at the higher levels of their public administration that tendency is impressive. It is rather that so much of what they themselves believe is wrong.

John Kenneth Galbraith (1908-2007) Canadian-American economist.

Information networks straddle the world. Nothing remains concealed. But the sheer volume of information dissolves the information. We are unable to take it all in.

Günter Grass (1927-?) German author.

Information can tell us everything. It has all the answers. But they are answers to questions we have not asked, and which doubtless don't even arise.

Jean Baudrillard (1929-2007) French sociologist, and philosopher.

The more the data banks record about each one of us, the less we exist.

Marshall Mcluhan (1911-1980) Canadian communications theorist and educator.

The stone age was marked by man's clever use of crude tools; the information age, to date, has been marked by man's crude use of clever tools.

Unknown Source

Private information is practically the source of every large modern fortune.
