So, for the people who may or may not know, I'm a Library Science student in my second semester. One of my classes involves information in the digital age and culture. To study this, of course, we have to define what 'information' is. Is it a tangible thing or some concept? In this essay by Michael Buckland, I've come across a quote that disturbs me greatly not for any ideas it puts across, but for its progression of examples.

"Firstly, it leaves unanswered the question of what to call other informative things, such as fossils, footprints, and screams of terror."

...screams of TERROR. IDEK.
