Welcome back to The Amateur Society for another discussion about information in light of the ongoing social media fiascos. In true amateur fashion, this open call breaks down the basics of digital information. The discussion focuses on a basic primer intended for those with no computer science background, and the concepts of information storage, text, images, and video are relayed in general, visual terms. It’s important for everyone to have at least a cursory understanding of how these things work as we deal with them every day. We hope this beginner-level discussion of digital information leads you into further research!
