Whilst reading this fun posting on the subject of Intelligent Design (surely, something we in the OpenSolaris universe know a lot about!) I was taken with the blog’s heading:
- DATA IS NOT INFORMATION
- INFORMATION IS NOT KNOWLEDGE
- KNOWLEDGE IS NOT WISDOM
- WISDOM IS NOT TRUTH
I like it because it speaks to little things (such as the blogosphere), and big things (such as the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, everything).
Another posting explains the caption’s origins. As a blog disclaimer, it is rather more useful than this:
THE INDIVIDUALS WHO POST HERE WORK AT SUN MICROSYSTEMS. THE OPINIONS EXPRESSED HERE ARE THEIR OWN, ARE NOT NECESSARILY REVIEWED IN ADVANCE BY ANYONE BUT THE INDIVIDUAL AUTHORS, AND NEITHER SUN NOR ANY OTHER PARTY NECESSARILY AGREES WITH THEM.
Good stuff. Perhaps I’ll work up the courage to post about my belief in Intelligent Design soon!
Sorry for stating the obvious(?) but the “question of life, the universe, everything” is already solved …. it’s 42, right …. 😉
Einstein said “Information is not Knowledge” but it was Frank Zappa who expanded it into a kind of negative ring of logic:
Wisdom is not truth
Truth is not beauty
Beauty is not love
Love is not music
Music is THE BEST…
Wisdom is the domain
of the Wis
(which is extinct).
Beauty is a French
Of a short cloth
Einstein said “Information is not Knowledge”
Are you sure Albert Einstein said that?
