title Defining Architecture: Defining Information
source ACADIA Quarterly, vol. 19, no. 1, pp. 3-7
summary The rapid onset of information technologies has changed ways we do things and how we view the world. Computation already pervades many aspects of daily life through subtle augmentations and by changing our tools and our professions. Moreover, information technology accelerates the pace of our activities, its speed outstripping our capacity to digest its product. The changes brought on by this deluge force its chroniclers to create new terms. Neologisms spring up daily, often only adding to the confusion. Conversely, old terms take on new meanings. Their familiarity fading under the rush of new technologies, new disciplines. We are bombarded with a hasty terminology all delivered with the urgency perhaps intent reserved to advertising and propaganda.
