My information and knowñedge theory in a nutshell: We need to distinguish information from records that represent it. Information is always there and always true. On the contrary, records maybe wrong or false. Information is description, a selection from a range of possibilities. Knowledge is capacity (potential) to behave effectively according to a community's judgement. IT is records management more than information management. If we agree on the above, information may be defined mathematically. The old debate about information quantity is obsolete, since it has been solved and since the pressing questions are not anymore about channel capacity, but about how do we organize and use the mountains of records (information) that are mounting on us.
