If you look over to the far righthand column under information, you will see several new pages on the website. I’ve had these online for a while but have only just recently figured out how to get them formatted and in the proper order for the Information column.
The new pages deal with Diffusions of Information in a Community. They provide a stp by step understanding of how data becomes knowledge, how individuals chose to adopt an innovation and how these changes then traverse a community.
They should distill a lot of information into reasonable sizes and make it easier to understand the process. There are also links to PDF versions of each.
