The Value of Information

We are living in the information age. Our information age is very similar to the renaissance and the reformation periods because thoughts and ideas are the most valued things in this age.  Some of the most highly paid and available jobs, for qualified individuals, are information systems and accounting. This just goes to show how much our social system values raw data. We as people, on the other hand, are still human and we need to carry our information in little packages called ideas, thoughts and ideologies. Information is the currency in our economy. Data floats around as numbers, just like money in the stock market or the national debt, but we as individuals need to carry our money around in little idea units like bills and coins.

Your idea is excellent; the issue is something that not enough persons are talking intelligently about. I’m very completely happy that I stumbled across this in my seek for one thing relating to this.
