This article asks whether the global process of digitization has led to noteworthy changes in the shares of the amount of text, images, audio, and video in worldwide technologically stored and communicated information content. We empirically quantify the amount of information that is globally broadcast, telecommunicated, and stored (1986–2007) and assess the evolution of the respective content shares. Somewhat unexpectedly, it turns out that the transfer from analog to digital has not led to… 
Hypervideo meets product placement: a study of product placement and its recall and recognition effects in interactive digital music video
TLDR
Evidence from a study of 280 participants suggests that interactive product placement is more effective than non-interactive product placement within digital music videos, as the interactive process increases recall and recognition of brands.
How much of the global information and communication explosion is driven by more, and how much by better technology?

TLDR
This work quantifies how much of the technologically‐mediated information and communication explosion during the period of digitization (1986–2007) was driven by the deployment of additional technological devices, and how much by technological progress in hardware and software.
Information ’ s Magic Numbers : The Numerology of Library and Information Science
TLDR
A chapter on the numerology of library and information science (LIS) is included in this volume due to a long-standing concern about the potential descent of this aspect of the information science discipline into a “new age of numerology” due to over-use and misuse.
A review of large-scale 'How much information?' inventories: variations, achievements and challenges
TLDR
This meta-study reviews the eight most important inventories in a descriptive and comparative manner, focusing on methodological differences and challenges, and reveals how different answers to the “how much information?” questions hinges upon the particular question on the researchers’ mind and on the subsequent methodological choices.
Attention Guidance Technique Using Visual Subliminal Cues And Its Application On Videos
TLDR
There was no main effect of cue frequency, but additional findings showed the possibility that the effect of subliminal cues occurred differently between gender, and other factors such as gaze orientation bias influenced the viewer’s gaze distribution.
Knowledge Management Systems as an Interdisciplinary Communication and Personalized General-Purpose Technology
TLDR
The result portrays the PKM concept as a strong candidate due to its personal, autonomous, bottom-up, collaborative, interdisciplinary, and creativity-supporting approach destined to advance the availability, quantity, and quality of the world extelligence and to allow for a wider sharing and faster diffusion of ideas across current disciplinary and opportunity divides.
Introducing Big Data
TLDR
This chapter suggests that despite the hype cycle, big data will, ultimately, result in major changes to both social and business life – though this change may takes decades to complete.
Quantifying the Data Deluge and the Data Drought
TLDR
It shows that the world’s technological capacity to store information has increased with a compound annual growth rate of 31 % during the three decades between 1986 and 2014 (from 2.6 exabytes to 4.6 zettabytes).
Supporting the Sustainable Growth of SMEs with Content- and Collaboration-based Personal Knowledge Management Systems
Abstract Personal knowledge management (PKM) has been envisaged as a decentralising revolution and as the most important educational concern. Its root objective aims for highly knowledgeable

TLDR
This article proposes an information theoretic measure that approximates the entropy of the source (which it is called “optimally compressed bits”) and explains the interpretation, creation, usage, benefits, and limitations of this unit of measurement.
