Information connects man to its fate and participates in his individual odyssey, his life adventure in the space and time. The essence of the information phenomenon is this appropriation of knowledge. Thus, if adequately assimilated information, modifies the individual mental stock of knowledge and brings benefits to his personal life development and to the society where he lives. This paper asks and tries to answer the question: how will be the people of tomorrow in a world where the writing and reading are mostly in digital format? It also presents an indication that digital texts with links have a different knowledge assimilation compared to conventional linear documents in printed paper. Some evidence of this qualitative difference is shown as result of a field research using computer analysis of full texts and a group people evatuating documents in both digital and linear form.
