Murphy's Law

The poverty of Web 2.0

I think this quote from Herbert Simon, which I have hastily lifted from Mr. Smith’s blog is worth considering today:

“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.”

Think about it….
