There, I said it. Let me say it again: "Information is Useless!"
I sometimes catch myself thinking of information useful and, when I do, I tell myself that it's because it provides knowledge that enriches. But what I forget that information is no more than a collection of data or facts with no guarantee of validity. It isn't information itself that is powerful.
Let me demonstrate: Here is some information: 0961392142
Did you immediately try to suss out some meaning from this number?
