Quick unscientific poll

No googling, now. And no looking at other people's answers first, or changing your own afterwards.
Feel free to guess if you don't know.

Poll #641862 Meanings of technical terms

What do you understand by the term "data"?

What do you understand by the term "capta"?

What do you understand by the term "information"?

What do you understand by the term "knowledge"?


ETA: Note that "capta" is not a typo. The word intended is not "capita" or "captcha", but "capta", spelt as such.

I'm referring to the terms as used in the general field of data processing, information technolgy, information systems, knowledge bases, and similar disciplines. Also, I'm more interested in people's understanding of the terms than in their knowledge of the definitions.
