Albert Ip commentss on my discussion with George Siemens on subjectivity and objectivity. I'll leave my commentary until he finishes his piece, but I will observe at this juncture that his use of words like 'information' and 'knowledge' is very different from mine - dramatically different. This, for example: "I will use the word 'information' to represent everything external to me." This is not remotely how I would define 'information' - my usage is more similar, I think, to writers like Dretske (Knowledge and the Flow of Information).
