“We are drowning in information, but starved for knowledge.” — John Naisbitt
There has never been a time in human history when we have had access to such vast amounts of information. Everything from our T.V., PC’s, laptops, and smart-phones allow us to surf the web from anywhere at any time. You can find out when your favorite band will be in your city, what time a movie is showing, or find out the latest celebrity gossip. All of that is information… but do you have knowledge?
