I believe, as I‚Äôve stated before, that information is simultaneously a relationship, an action, and an area of shared mind. What it isn‚Äôt is a noun.
Information is not a thing. It isn‚Äôt an object. It isn‚Äôt something that, when you sell it or have it stolen, ceases to remain in your possession. It doesn‚Äôt have a market value that can be objectively determined. It is not, for example, much like a 2004 Ducati ST4S motorcycle, for which I‚Äôm presently in the market, and which seems – despite variabilities based on, I must admit, informationally- based conditions like mileage and whether it‚Äôs been dropped – to have a value that is pretty consistent among the specimens I can find for a sale on the Web.
