The quote you have fashioned to introduce your remarks at the Asilomar Conference in July correctly recognizes the goal of bringing order to the New World Order of chaos created by technology that compresses time and distance. For many, the distinction between information and knowledge is a major awakening. We want to make this easy to remember as a critical ingredient for making the Information Highway productive in the 21st century.
The NWO paper uses "knowledge" to mean connecting information, time, and context for establishing and refining the accuracy of cause and effect. These steps are supported by SDS technology, which you will see on Wednesday, and are embodied in the call for a new management science of Communication Metrics that enables a better partnership between leadership and technology that makes management effective.
Here is another take on a quote you might consider approving....
Thanks very much.
