Information technology is concerned with creating information through the intelligent management and application of data, and acts as a change agent for human cultures. Like business, technology permeates every aspect of humanity in our communal striving to do better, to communicate more effectively, and to continually build whatever we can imagine. Transforming every aspect of our lives, information technology improves the fields of agriculture, biomedical, construction, educational, energy, environmental, industrial, telecommunications, transportation ... and the list goes on. The incredible proliferation of social media is the latest demonstration of technology connecting our society. In order to substain and integrate business and law in the constantly evolving world of today, information technology is integral. Where data can be recorded, it can be measured, analyzed, and evaluated -- creating new information, new business and new possibilities for the human race.
There once was a master programmer who wrote unstructured programs.
A novice programmer, seeking to imitate him, also began to write unstructured programs. When the novice asked the master to evaluate his progress, the master criticized him for writing unstructured programs, saying: "What is appropriate for the master is not appropriate for the novice. You must understand the Tao before transcending structure." -- Geoffrey James, "The Tao of Programming"
