Robert L. Frost, School of Information SI/SOC110: “Introduction to Information” by Robert L. Frost, 2007. Please pirate shamelessly, but credit. Traditional Definition… Data… Information… Knowledge… Wisdom Is this useful? Pitfalls: info is so insignificant? Is information just a set of pointers, even gestures? A postmodern premise: does information make meaning? --or is it just an impoverished reflection of reality?

A [somewhat] Simple Model… noise attention signal name it data categorize it info share it know- ledge learn from it wisdom …But none of these have any consequences unless they are “in motion,” from eye to brain, text-to-eye, mouth-to ear.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
