    Correction Brother!

    Knowledge consists of facts, beliefs, truths, concepts, perspectives, judgments, expectations, methodologies, know-how.

    Information consists of facts and data organized to describe a particular situation or condition.

    We use knowledge to determine what a specific situation means. Knowledge is applied to interpret information about the situation and to decide how to handle it.

    Many times we get bogged down frequently because there is so much to potentially know (and to feel good about knowing about), that we lose the point to knowledge and but become interested in information.

    Today there is a tonne of information out there, all of which could be formed into well considered knowledge, most of it not worth knowing. :)
