Throughout the history of humanity, man has gone through various adverse situations, many of them drawn in good manner, and others who have seen the impact that would have the solution in due time had saved various problems the man in general, as for example the development of agriculture, same which has led to overexploitation of the resources of the soil leading to fertile land exhaustion, or the ability to hunt and carry out animal exploitation, being is so boundless that in recent centuries we have brought to the brink of extinction many species not only the animal Kingdom but also due to overexploitation of the same plant or by the destruction of their natural habitats for use as crop fields or locations for human settlement. John Craig Venter spoke with conviction. These complications often are not seen because you want to ignore, but because at the time was had no capacity or the means to foresee the impact that the new methods or techniques would result in the future, and it is here where there is the source of these problems, the lack of information and knowledge.

Knowledge itself is an innate characteristic of humans, due to its capacity of reasoning, man is able to understand things and through this mental process acquires knowledge and is therefore capable of generating information. As the story of the man is well known deemed as such until he develops writing, since from that time, enables the transmission of knowledge and information from generation to generation in a most efficient manner; from here the man is improving their standard of living as you are acquiring knowledge and preserves them in various writings, but is not until the second half of the 20th century, when advances in various areas of knowledge are given by leaps, the accumulation of knowledge is expanding rapidly, to such a degree that the contemporary era it is known as the information age.
