Interesting Insights and Findings:

  • There is no exact corellation between cost and value. It does not mean that if we want to retrieve high-value information we must pay with high cost. There are cases whereby we obtain information that is highly valued at low cost or even no cost at all.
  • The information comes from 3 broad categories: people, electronic media, and printed materials.
  • Information that has important implications or relationship to one's personal life tends to be highly valued.
  • In addition, information that we need urgently tends to be highly valued.
  • Obtaining some information may become people's routines. For example, reading daily news and checking mailbox. However, there is also information that people acquire ignited by occurence of unexpected events. For example, when we see crowds we may to know what is happening.
