Information as Milk or Wine?

I’ve been thinking about information – ‘news’ if you will – quite a bit lately – in the context of other things we ‘consume’ – beverages.

 

Milk   Wine
Kids drink it Adults drink it
Paired with cookies   Paired with dinner
Expires/Smells funny   “Gets better with age”
Homogenized   Vintage
Price varies little   Price varies greatly
Un-vegan   Un-vegan

Obviously, the ‘wine’ side is more attractive (at least to mildly-lactose-intolerant me). Cullect and its ‘Important Rank‘ is built on the ‘wine’ side.

Note: I consider this a half-formed post.
To Do: figure out if/how this ties into Matt’s Newless.org project.
