Digital information transmission

From Wikinormous

Digital information transmission is the process of how information is transferred digitally. By largely equating the interface of digital information transmissions with a webbrowser and a google search, the available information is commoditised in a somewhat paradoxical fashion:

Information is valuable if it is scarce (knowledge of scarce information may give advantage according to the device "knowledge is power").


but,


Information which is not available through the webbrowser & Google search does not exist (or can at least not be verified) and therefore has low or no value.

Wikipedia is an interesting "gate", where digitally non-existent information is brought in from the analog world into the great encyclopaedia and the processed information becomes instantly valuable.
