“Information Renaissance” is the concept that we are in a post-industrial age, whose characteristics can be understood to be like the historic transformation of the European Renaissance. The historic renaissance had a decisive impact on human development, through the information catalyst of movable-type publishing. Renaissance ideas spread throughout Europe at first, then globally in the ensuing centuries. My thesis is that we are now in such “renaissance times.”
