Shannon Revisited: Information in Terms of Uncertainty.
Cole, Charles
Journal of the American Society for Information Science, v44 n4 p204-11 May 1993
Discusses the meaning of information in terms of Shannon's mathematical theory of communication and the concept of uncertainty. The uncertainty associated with the transmission of the signal is argued to have more significance for information science than the uncertainty associated with the selection of a message from a set of possible messages.
