Norbert Wiener (1894-1964), often called the founder of Cybernetics (The Science of Communication), wrote a book simply called ‘Cybernetics’ (1948). He then penned a layman’s version of the book, called “Human’s Use of Human Beings” (1950). My big take-home from “Human’s Use of Human Beings” is as follows.

There are two basic forms of communication:

One to be clear

The other to confuse

In relation to “the other to confuse” there are its two chief components:

Jam – the oversupply, or too much, information

Silence – no information
