I am sooo tired tonight that i must be able to get some sleep. Surely god......
Shopping tomorrow (by myself :<) to purchase valentine's gift for rebecca and pick up my mended video recorder.
For some reason, my mobile is giving off an awful amount of electromagnetic radiation (easily audible in any adjacent speakers), so much so that me and paul are convinced it's dangerous - maybe i have head cancer?
Matt asked a good question (actually asked by the spark) the other day - what is the greater value of the Internet: Information or Communication.
Here's my take on it:
Information is data with an attached context.
Communication is the flow of information between end points (information, NOT data).
With this in mind, the Internet is providing a medium on which to transport messages (Which are in turn information because they have a context). Since the Internet is moving this information (or at least allowing it to flow from end to end) it is a pure communications tool.
Of course the problems come in because when faced with such a great way to send information, we create extra information to utilise the medium (burton's law?). I think the greatest use of the Internet is for people to find information which otherwise existed but was unreachable. Ihe Internet has allowed freedom of information, which is to say, communication
Confused? I Am (am-i-confused-or-not.com. oh dear...)
