Words Poorly Used #109 — Information

It’s just a system.  It is independent of ideas of right and wrong.  Data goes in and it gets transformed in the process that awaits it.  The output is a direct result of the process.  The process can be tinkered with to produce relatively true or false information.  The output is just in-formation — in a formal structure.  That formal structure, presentation, sometimes fools its patrons — if it looks orderly (and truth should be orderly) then it must be true.  Watch out for data dressed formally.
