Information Society (album)
Information Society is an album by the synthpop, techno and freestyle band Information Society. It was their first release under a major label, after two independently released albums. Numerous top-40 hits quickly led the group to fame and fortune. The album was certified gold (selling 500,000 units) after five months in the U.S. and also went gold in Brazil in just 10 days. The album had several chart-topping hits such as "What's on Your Mind (Pure Energy)", "Walking Away", and "Running". It was one of the only albums released in the seldom-used CD+G format.

Famous quotes containing the words information and/or society:
“Knowledge is of two kinds. We know a subject ourselves, or we know where we can find information upon it.”
—Samuel Johnson (17091784)
“The press is no substitute for institutions. It is like the beam of a searchlight that moves restlessly about, bringing one episode and then another out of darkness into vision. Men cannot do the work of the world by this light alone. They cannot govern society by episodes, incidents, and eruptions. It is only when they work by a steady light of their own, that the press, when it is turned upon them, reveals a situation intelligible enough for a popular decision.”
—Walter Lippmann (18891974)
