Information Is Power
[00:08.02]In such a changing, complex society formerly simple solutions
[00:11.51]to informational needs become complicated.
[00:14.68]Many of life's problems which were solved
[00:17.95]by asking family members,friends or colleagues
[00:21.13]are beyond the capability of extended family to resolve.
[00:24.09]Where to turn for expert information and how to determine
[00:27.91]which expert advice to accept
[00:30.63]are questions facing many people today.
[00:32.73]Adding to societal changes today
[00:35.96] is an enormous supply of information.
[00:37.76]The individual now has more information available than any generation,
[00:43.01]and the task of finding that one piece of information
[00:46.29]relevant to his or her specific problem
[00:49.81] is complicated, time-consuming
[00:51.21]and sometimes even overwhelming.
[00:53.40]Coupled with the growing quantity of information
[00:57.25] is the development of technologies
[00:58.54]which enable the storage and delivery of more information
[01:02.44] with greater speed to more locations
[01:04.12]than has ever been possible before.
[01:06.09]Computer technology makes it possible
[01:08.50]to store vast amounts of data in machine-readable files,
[01:11.56]and to program computers to locate specific information.
[01:15.16]Telecommunication developments enable the sending of messages
[01:20.27] via television, radio,and very shortly, electronic mail
[01:24.33]to bombard people with multitudes of messages.
[01:26.99]Satellites have extended the power of communications
[01:31.01]to report events at the instant occurrence.
[01:33.00]Expertise can be shared world wide through teleconferencing,
[01:36.83]and problems in dispute can be settled
[01:39.56] without participants leaving their homes or jobs
[01:42.74]to travel to a distant conference site.
[01:45.04]Technology has facilitated the sharing of information
[01:48.70]and the storage and delivery of information,
[01:50.84]thus making more information available to more people.
[01:54.22]In this world of change and complexity,
[01:57.61]the need for information is of greatest importance.
