The Value of Information

Interesting link from publishers - http://informationarchitects.jp/the-value-of-information/

They identify five dimensions of information value:
- monetary
- artistic
- academic/scientific
- practical eg maps, manuals
- entertaining

therefore you should be prepared to pay.....?

Yes, information has value, but it depends on the context and the individual, need etc etc etc.
Interesting though....

Interesting article...

Hi Richard. A blast from your past- not sure if you remember me from Latin with Mrs Whatman and Mr Bamford's physics class - just couldn't resist saying hi. Are you on Facebook?
Drop a line if you feel like catching up.
