in-forma > 11/07/04

Information technology is based on binary digits that send signals to process, store or retrieve data and - like any language - it’s completely intelligible for the one who can read the language in question, which would differentiate it from noise, yet it is in-forma - it needs its other, its interface.

Information technology is not information; it’s a means, a media, a vehicle - today often for information, but to my delight not exclusively so as it’s also a means for sharing knowledge in different forms.
