There has never been more information freely available than there is now. It is so abundant that many people find themselves drowning in it - it's finding useful and accurate information that has become important. We are now at a phase of civilisation where information costs almost nothing to reproduce or transmit.

One of the most significant things in this age is that information needed to describe the constructon of physical things can be transmitted to automated machines which can then manufacture a new object or device out of massively abundant raw materials. (See section on turning virtual designs into physical objects).
