Information, Knowledge, Text is concerned with connections between computing and writing and precursors to modern information technologies. It brings historical and humanistic perspectives to bear on contemporary information developments, enabling a deepening understanding of those developments. Rather than developing a single overarching thesis, Warner weaves together several themes, basing his chapters on carefully edited journal articles and conference presentations. Individual essays cover the history of writing and signal transmission, the concept of exactness as it relates to human semiotic constructions, forms of representation in formal logic and automata studies, copyright, and graphic communication. A final chapter offers a review of literature that further explores the established themes.

...Warner has written a very thoughtful and well-informed book that definitely deserves attention. His historical exposition of writing and the computer, and the connection between these, as information technologies that shape human activities, is enlightening. * JASIST (Journal of the American Society for Information Science & Technology) *
