In "The Rise of the Network Society", page 17,
Manuel Castells settles on these two definitions:
"Information is data that has been organized and communicated."
-- Marc Porat, 1977
"Knowledge is a set of organized statements of facts or ideas, presenting
a reasoned judgment or an experimental results, which is transmitted to
others through some commnication medium in some systematic form. Thus,
I distinguish knowledge from news and entertainment."
-- Daniel Bell, 1973
