I guess I am at a loss to see them as separate 
discourses.  Especially in the domain of Information.

Contrary to what Stan said, I think that many of 
the major advances in science from Statistical 
Mechanics, to Relativity Theory to Quantum 
Mechanics did and continue to have a major 
philosophical component, and professional 
philosophers work with scientists directly in 
each of these fields, It used to be true in 
Computer Science, but is less so now. In 
Cognitive Science there is currently virtually 
now separation. In Biology there are many 
philosophers who work with biologists, and vice 
versa, but far too many who do not.

I think that technology is much more linked to 
industry than it is to the sciences above.
