So much information

| Quotations | 1 Comment

"Everybody gets so much information all day long that they lose their common sense."

- Gertrude Stein.

Especially nowadays in the Age of the Computer there is so much information out there that it is impossible to collate even a tiny fraction of the infinite bits and bytes without straining one's sanity to the extreme. Lose their common sense, poor folks. Personally, I like many others out there suffer a slight form of infatuation, addiction if you will, enamored with the unknown crooks and crannies of information to-be-discovered. What it has to offer. Wherever that may be. One link leads you on to the other link, on to the other link, and so forth ad infinitum. Where to stop, that is the question.

I live in a place where wireless networks are as organic and nescessary as the air we breathe, and LAN's are available at every desk and chair. It is both freedom and slavery. On one hand, we have access to limitless amounts of information. On the other, there seems to be much less human interaction. For how can you stop to say hello, when you're munching at the never ending buffet of information at your fingertips. Everyone here seems to have lost one thing or another for their consumption of the internet.
