That is Information
These are organized by a classification scheme developed exclusively for Cosma. More…
information : (1) a signal or character (as in a communication system or computer) representing data (2) something (such as a message, experimental data, or a picture) which justifies change in a construct (such as a plan or theory) that represents physical or mental experience or another construct — Webster
Information is expressed either as the content of a message or through direct or indirect observation. That which is perceived can be construed as a message in its own right, and in that sense, information is always conveyed as the content of a message. Information can be encoded into various forms for transmission and interpretation (for example, information may be encoded into a sequence of signs, or transmitted via a signal). It can also be encrypted for safe storage and communication. Information can be transmitted in time, via data storage, and space, via communication and telecommunication. — Wikipedia
Information theory is the study of the quantification, storage, and communication of information. The field is at the intersection of probability theory, statistics, computer science, statistical mechanics, information engineering, and electrical engineering. — Wikipedia

Information system (IS) is a formal, sociotechnical, organizational system designed to collect, process, store, and distribute information. From a sociotechnical perspective, information systems are composed by four components: task, people, structure (or roles), and technology. Information systems can be defined as an integration of components for collection, storage and processing of data of which the data is used to provide information, contribute to knowledge as well as digital products that facilitate decision making. — Wikipedia

Information society is a society in which the creation, distribution, diffusion, use, integration and manipulation of information is a significant economic, political, and cultural activity. The knowledge economy is its economic counterpart whereby wealth is created through the economic exploitation of understanding. People that have the means to partake in this form of society are sometimes called digital citizens. — Wikipedia
