Riassunto: The context of this book is the growing interest in information as a commodity, arising from increased Internet use, and the accompanying problems of information overload.
Focusing on information as a phenomenon in its own right, rather than describing the technology for handling it, the book includes discussion on: the craving for information, Popper's 3 Worlds model of information, and analytical and synthetic approaches to information management such as knowledge bases and Project Xanadu. This book is extensively referenced.
Sinossi: This book takes a very broad view of information, and considers it as a phenomenon in its own right, rather than the technology for handling it. It is very much concerned with the meaning of information, and what we as individuals do with it.
