Name: s.w. stukey

From: Florida

Bio: internet user

Area of Expertise: Legislator/Politician/Lawyer

Topic: Getting, Sharing Information

Headline: Information by the Ounce

Nutshell: No one will give information away - it would be like giving away money.

Vision: As more companies and people recognize the value of all different types of information (even their names and demographic descriptions), the e-business of information management, storage, and sale for authorized use will bloom, making the "free flow of information" goal seem laughable.
