The pipe is more important than the content within the pipe.
Initially, I would have argued that the quality and accuracy of the present information contained in the pipe that is being actively disseminated is the most important aspect of the system. However, after reading Mr. Siemens' blog post here on Connectivism, my stance is closer to his conclusion. I think the information within the pipe will have fluctuations in regards to accuracy, but that is to be expected with freedom of use and not as concerned about (as I initially was) because that information is constantly held accountable by the the web's active users. The pipe needs to have the highest priority of sustainable integrity because it is what facilitates the connected to said free information, without the pipe, there is no endless web of links and connections across distance and time over the web.
