Shannon was the father of Information Theory, not technology, there's a huge difference.

As an Electrical Engineer I had to study his equations, and his theory was the cornerstone of modern thinking about information, close to E=MC2's impact in physics, and led to everything we're doing now!

His theory opened the door to satellite communications and any form of digital communication that occurs, giving us a full understand of the properties of the communication channel.

Good explanation here: Information theory - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia[^]
