Regarding Limits to Information

Another excellent post at “A Prosperous Way Down.”  Most people do not understand the need to connect the dots between energy flow and information flow.

A great point that I’ll repeat for emphasis: “Those who view the current information storm as a stepping stone on the way to the Singularity or an information society may not understand the degree of continuous, incremental energetic transformation that is required to maintain and expand a highly technological society.”
