Quote of the Day

Today I listened to a talk on a topic called Social Acceleration, and the lecturer posted this quote:

'What information consumes is rather obvious: it consumes the attention of its recipients. Hence a wealth of information creates a poverty of attention and a need to allocate that attention efficiently among the overabundance of information sources that might consume it.' (Herbert Simon)
