Quote of the Day – 12/10/2016


The flow of information differs from the flow of energy in one crucial respect: there is a finite supply of energy, which means that tapping it is invariably a zero-sum game. But the spread of information does not come with the same cost, particularly in the age of global networks. An idea that flows through a society does not grow less useful as it circulates; most of the time, the opposite occurs: the idea improves, as its circulation attracts the attention of the Ingenious. – Steven Johnson (@stevenbjohnson); The Invention of Air
