Am I missing an alterative term for "reference?"

Information is the opposite of information

David Weinberger

The ordinary language use of the term (well, one of them) is to refer to something you are about to learn or have just learned: “I have some information for you, sir! ” But we use the term primarily to refer to news that’s not all that important to us personally. For example, if you asked someone for your doctor’s address, what you learned you might well refer to as “information.”

[2b2k] The commoditizing and networking of facts

David Weinberger

every fact can always have references accompanying it. On the other hand, because Wikidata is doing this commoditizing in a networked space, its facts are themselves links — “referenceable facts” are both facts that can be referenced, and simultaneously facts that come with links to their own references. ” Those references serve at least three purposes: 1.
