Abstract [en]

Information technology warps information space, but there are limits to the availability of information. Information distance is introduced to begin investigate the shape of information space, which is very much needed. The concept of availability profile is proposed as a way of defining spatial location in information space, also interpretable as information state. A first check of the possibilities to extend the agentcentric view into an infocentric view is not immediately discouraging, but many problems and issues remain.
