The Essence with No Substance – Medium
[cesar takes a big swing]
the mystery of the human experience hinges in a reality that is unsubstantial, yet more mysterious and profound. That reality is the duality between matter and information.

AFIS - Association française pour l'information scientifique
L’AFIS se donne pour but de promouvoir la science contre ceux qui nient ses valeurs culturelles, la détournent vers des œuvres malfaisantes ou encore usent de son nom pour couvrir des entreprises charlatanesques. Elle se veut indépendante de tout groupe de pression et veut éviter toute concession au sensationnalisme, à la désinformation et à la complaisance pour l’irrationnel.

Did Media Literacy Backfire?
"too many students I met were being told that Wikipedia was untrustworthy and were, instead, being encouraged to do research. As a result, the message that many had taken home was to turn to Google and use whatever came up first. They heard that Google was trustworthy and Wikipedia was not."

The Cybernetic Humanities - Los Angeles Review of Books
By looking at the world through the prism of behavioral pattern rather than function, Wiener was able to describe both animals and machines in terms borrowed from physics: both were pools of negative entropy, relatively stable patterns of resistance to the slow degeneration of all organization in the universe. This idea would prove crucial in the next years, when Wiener and Claude Shannon simultaneously developed a new theory: the theory of information, or what Shannon called “the mathematical theory of communication.” Kline’s account of this simultaneous discovery is one of the high points of his book. Both men made the analogy to thermodynamics, arguing that messages, too, were pools of negative entropy. Shannon provided a general formula for channel capacity, a way to ensure that messages could be encoded and decoded without degrading into mere noise. For Shannon, as Kline points out, “information” was an entropic background from which specific messages had to be selected (with shades of the way we use “data” today). For Wiener, it was the other way around: information was the message, entropy the noise. Wiener’s metaphor ultimately won. We now mostly imagine information as message, or, in Bateson’s famous phrase, as “a difference that makes a difference.”

Tuesday’s Tip: Seven Universal Factors Why Technology Firms Fail - by @rwang0
"Innovation. Vendors who fail to move to new platforms, slow the pace and quality of innovation, or not adapt to new trends would fail to make the transition to the next era. In many cases, the pile of technical debt from failing to innovate holds back the vendor’s ability to innovate. Slashing of R&D and innovation budgets, departure of key founders and executives, and the failure to attract new talent signify impending failure."
