Questions What is the price to pay when we confuse opinions for information? The credibility of the contents? How will we achieve the industrialization of information and reduce the amount of Big Data that currently encumbers our networks? If the primary dimensions of the industrial world were space and time, will the dimensions of the knowledge-based society not be time, space and information? Does our brain gets used to the perpetual « butterflying » that characterizes current social networks? If during the industrial era information was a matter of storage, during the post-industrial era, will it become an issue of information processing? Will society be divided between information « haves » and information « have-nots » information, the latter becoming basically functionally illiterate? Does the tweet become linked to oral tradition (related to the time factor of transmission) while writing content become related to the factor of space? (See Harold Innis) Do the algorithms of search engines developed by private companies cause cultural distortions? Does the circulation of large amounts of non-validated information undermine the confidence of the people and create an environment of gloom? Is there a content credibility problem on the horizon? If content on the web content is growing in four different fields (military, commercial, educational, and social) will it cause a major rupture in society? Because the Net is funded increasingly through an economy of contribution imposed by the major platforms, does it signal the end of the myth of free content?
