The Information Society uses the tools and techniques of the Information Age and the Information Economy. This society does not know any other way and expects precise information to be available immediately at no cost. Older information concepts are meaningless such as a library that closes at night or an encyclopedia that sits on a shelf. This society expects to do everything with speed, efficiency, efficacy and economy. The investor can trade from any place at any time, the builder can update a permit from any place at any time, etc, etc. The Information Society is primarily composed of knowledge workers with the perspective that change is constant, inevitable and acceptable.
