    It’s a sick joke that we’ve celebrated being in the “information age” for the last 20-25 years, and now that information is being obfuscated by various means again.

    SEO, censorship, paywalls.

      it’s not the information age, it’s the data age.

      Information implies usefulness. Data is just data. Could be right, could be wrong, who knows.

        You could say the same thing about information, though. Information doesn’t necessarily imply usefulness. There is an infinitude of information in the universe which is useless to us.

          I guess I should have said “correctness” instead of usefulness
