"Information ... has no content, no structure and no meaning in itself. - #readingToday

Information – Simondon is unambiguous about this – has no content, no structure and no meaning. In itself, it is nothing but disparity. Its meaning is the coming into existence of the new level that effectively takes off from the disparity and resolves the discontinuity it exhibits into a continuity of operation. Information is redefined in terms of this event. As for Gregory Bateson, information is a 'difference that makes a difference': a disparity that actively yields a new quantum of effect, and whose meaning is the novelty value of that effect.
