Excerpt
Excerpt: The expressions ?information age? and ?global information economy? are used with considerable frequency today. The general idea of an ?information economy? includes both the notion of industries primarily producing, processing, and distributing information, as well as the idea that every industry is using available information and information technology to reorganize and make themselves more productive. For the purpose of developing NAICS, it is the transformation of information into a commodity that is produced, manipulated and distributed by a number of growing industries that is at issue. The proposed Information sector groups three types of establishments: those engaged in producing, manipulating and distributing information and cultural products; those that provide the means to transmit or distribute these products as well as data or communications; and those that process data or transactions. (Cultural products are those that directly express attitudes, opinions, ideas, values, and artistic creativity; provide entertainment; or offer information and analysis concerning the past and present. Included in this definition are popular, mass-produced, products as well as cultural products that normally have a more limited audience, such as poetry books, literary magazines or classical records.) These activities are currently classified throughout the existing national classifications; traditional publishing is in manufacturing, broadcasting in communications, software production in business services, film production in amusement services, etc.
