Sub-disciplines of information science, IMO, should not include "Information technology" "Computer storage" "Intellectual property" "Intellectual freedom" "Privacy" or "Censorship."

Information technology (IT) is a sub-discipline of Engineering telecommunications infrastructure. Too many linkages included weakens relationships that confuse the significance (stand-alone) quality of a major subject/topic (Information Science). Information science is about the quality/nature... of the material that traverses the IT infrastructure. IOW, The reason for IT infrastructure, existence and investments, is the value of the information material/cargo and the add-value requirement, existence and investments, of the IT infrastructure. IT architecture/solution is never an Information architecture/solution IMO. IT nomenclature/tags of routers, hubs, gateways, bridges ... reflects engineering/infrastructure.

The same argument can be made for Law or other subjects for "Computer storage" "Intellectual property" "Intellectual freedom" "Privacy" or "Censorship." — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:17, 12 September 2012 (UTC)
