Information wants to be…

You know that quote you always hear?

Information Wants To Be Free.

It’s not the whole quote.

Here’s the entirely of it:

Information Wants To Be Free. Information also wants to be expensive. …That tension will not go away

It was coined by Stewart Brand, who is an interesting man, and editor of the Whole Earth Catalogue

The whole quote is so much more interesting than the shortened version. And people only quoting the shortened version tell you a lot about themselves…
