I wonder if "Information" should be considered to have a "when" it is,
not just "what" it is. And the "when" could be measured relative to
my current location. So it does seem potentially relevant to know
some sort of indication of "where" insofar as "where" can be mapped
to "how long might it minimally me take to retrieve the information
that is".
