Horns of a dilemma

“Agencies Rethink Access To Data,” Wall Street Journal, October 11, 2013 A1 http://on.wsj.com/1bKyU8Q

How do you make information equally available (and that includes at the same time) when some users can react more quickly?  Is the current lockup process fair?  Do embargoed news releases still work? Are leaks inevitable?  Should the government have the discretion as to when to release what?

How do you control access to data that everyone should have an equal opportunity to use immediately?  Can you do anything to slow down high-speed traders?  Should you?  Horns of a dilemma.

Revert to snail-mail for the release?  Does that level the playing field?  Does anything? Twitter?
