Het onderdeel C van de aanname dat er alleen een SI bestaat wanneer er sprake is van de Context (C), Informatieobject (Io) en een Handeling (H).

Dit betreft voornamelijk de beschrijving van de elementen op hoofdlijnen die bij de overige onderdelen weer terug kunnen komen.



Monde est tout notre object
Universelle notre tendance.
Nous voulons: croire au progres a l'intelligence,
Desarmer les bras, les coeurs, les mentalites
A travers tout l'espace, a travers tous les temps.
Nation, homme, societe, la divinite
Est a l'ouest, nord aux extremites
Unir, organiser, par excellence
Monde, qui est notre object.

A perfect match? Connecting partners in the labyrinth of information 1

Rienk Jonker


In this essay I will give some insight into the results of my quest as an archivist2 to understand the fundamentals of information. It is not only about trying to understand the complexity, but mostly to grasp or grock this phenomenon. With the verb grock one indicates that he or she is to understand completely and thoroughly an object, subject or issue (Heinlein, 1961). At one point I was surprised to notice that the common perception of complexity of information and information management overshadows the relative simplicity of the outcome of the grocking.

As an archivist in Leeuwarden I am on an almost regular basis confronted with born digital information. I have to answer questions related to (functional) requirements and tenders for digital systems, change management, information architecture, system management, process development and management, migrations, and conversions. The answers have to be simple, preferably fitting on one page (e.g. as a checklist), because those who are asking are not interested in long considerations, reports and notes. Often there is not much time and quick decisions have to be made. It makes my job interesting, because old and new theories clash sometimes.

(...) I see now more clearly than ever before that even our greatest troubles spring from something that is as admirable and sound as it is dangerous - from our impatience to better the lot of our fellows. For these troubles are the by-products of what is perhaps the greatest of all moral and spiritual revolutions of history, a movement which began three centuries ago. It is the longing of uncounted unknown men (and women, rsj), to free themselves and their minds from the tutelage of authority and prejudice.
