The Speed of Information

“A critical fact in the world of 1801 was that nothing moved faster than the speed of a horse. No human being, no manufactured item, no bushel of wheat . . . no letter, no information, no idea, order, or instruction of any kind moved faster. Nothing ever had moved any faster.”

—Stephen E. Ambrose, Undaunted Courage (Simon & Schuster, 1996), p. 52. (HT: Tim Challies)
