Knowledge management, the evolution

Stone Tablets

There is a well-known transition of thought that has been singularly clear since the beginning of human existence:

  • Data becomes information
  • Information becomes knowledge
  • Knowledge becomes wisdom

It’s that simple.

Over the centuries, the way we store and manage data has evolved in ways that have created a nearly-infinite improvement. What takes seconds to store now could have taken literally years to reproduce on stone tablets in the past. It’s an amazing technological world.

This infographic by SocialCast breaks down that evolution visually. Click to enlarge.
