The citation for Harland Cleveland's book chapter is: Cleveland, Harlan. The Twilight of Hierarchy: Speculations on the Global Information Society. In: Information Technologies and Social Transformation (Guile, B.R., ed.). Washington, D.C.: National Academy Press, 1985, pp. 55-80. A scanned version of the text of this chapter is available from the National Academies Press at: http://books.nap.edu/books/0309035295/html/55.html Bernie Sloan -----Original Message----- [mailto:email@example.com] On Behalf Of Carol A. Hughes Sent: Monday, October 18, 2004 6:14 PM Subject: Re: More on "information wants to be free" Another related statement about information "wanting" to be free, about the time of Stewart Brand, was Harlan Cleveland (c1985) in a book chapter entitled:: "Twilight of Hierarchy; Speculations on the Global Information Society." In this chapter he stated a version of "information wants to be free" and didn't footnote Brand. He stated "Information is diffusive. It tends to leak--and the more it leaks the more we have." Maybe information leaked between them. I unfortunately don't have the citation for this chapter - just a photocopy, but I remember it being widely referred to in the later 1980's.
