|I liked this explanation (not verbatim) by Dr. Jim Chen of data, information, knowledge, and wisdom.|
- Data: This is an alphanumeric entity and/or symbol (ABC, 123, !@#...)
- Information: This is when entities are related/associated to each other and thereby derive meaning. (Information = Data + Meaning)
- Knowledge: This is information applied to context. (Knowledge = Data + Meaning + Context)
- Wisdom: This is knowledge applied to multiple contexts. (Wisdom = Data + Meaning + (Context x N cases)).
I'd like to end this blog with a short quote that I thought sort of sums it up:
"A man may be born to wealth, but wisdom comes only with length of days." - Anonymous
