This working document distills "information axioms" for emerging policy networks.
We culled these information axioms from a variety of analysts whose work examines
primarily - but not wholly - emerging commercial information networks on the Internet.
These "axioms" do not necessarily apply to non-profits, or true communities, but rather,
are to serve as a starting point in understanding the role of information and information
technologies in the policy process. We intend to produce a similar set of axioms for the
way information is used by contending policy currents in information battles in US foreign
policy decisionmaking. Please submit your comments, suggestions, or own axioms below
to contribute to this process.
