Field Note #48. On "Foskett's Pyramid"

Source: D.J. Foskett (British librarian; library + info. scientist), "Libraries and Information Systems - A Fruitful Partnership" in Proceedings of the Annual Conference of CAIS / Actes Du congrès Annuel De l’ACSI (2013)

The Main Idea.

In our decidedly digital age, I am learning a great deal from a librarian, including that engaging in consecutive and integrated thought, underpinned by a curiosity-driven and structured research engine remains a (crypto) investing super power.

This Field Note concerns the intensifying problem of information overload (see, e.g., FN 3_On Info Smog and FN 6_On Crypto Information Diets) by examining the relationships among data, information, knowledge, and wisdom. The source framework comes from Douglas John Foskett, a 20th century librarian, classificationist, and master of LIS (library & info science).

Applying this data to my current crypto investing work has generated (in an interdisciplinary and brutally practical way) the following lines of information.  

(1) Structure: Data <--> Information <--> Knowledge <--> Wisdom
(2) Activity: Background Research <--> Evaluation Assessment <--> Variant View <--> Bet
(3) Tool: Information Diet <--> Investment Framework <--> Written Product <--> Position Sizer

(2) and (3) will continue to consume my attention.
