The virtual gold – Information

Posted: October 29, 2011 in Tech

Intelligence and Information were important since pre-historic times where intel on enemies meant a difference between victory and defeat; and quite possibly between slavery and kingship.

In today’s world, there is no dearth of data. By data, I mean the “object” created in the memories of machines. But how much of this is of actual relevance to us?

Those who mine data and analyze it would beg to differ. Perhaps each bank of data is literally a bank waiting to be robbed!

Information which helps create value is of value.

Period!
