Information is garbage

Topic: 
And tsunami is an apt description of what we now face. We all generate and consume information on countless screens. Information is now free-form. It’s evident in our move away from formalized data stores into call-and-response APIs. It’s evident in our information-gathering habits – now more a process of grazing than a formal process of gathering. And it’s evident in our media which now comes at us with a force unmatched in history. The world around us wants to offer us all the information all the time and we have no time to assess what is true, what is not, and, most important, what is valuable.

Sad but true. So many comments in the popular media and culture about how "busy" we are, yet we create our own "busyness". How busy would we be if we put down the screens for a moment or two? I have to admit that I'm guilty - I have the compulsion that if I don't mark, save, or share something now, I will forget it.:-\
