Images are information

Images are information
Well, it has taken me more than two years to get back to this blog, but here I am.
I am just about to publish this quarter's newsletter and am struck by the coalescing of the digital technologies. There are now cellphones that shoot 10 megapixel images and play music as well as communicate wirelessly. See Samsung for the latest techie toys and my News at for the latest a greatest.
An image file in a very near future may actually not only carry printing instructions but also information about the object it is imaging. What a great wrapper for information.
Images will truly be information then.
If we only can standardize and preserve all that data.
