Chomsky on Information Overload
Ironic. (Or maybe not. I never really understood this word well enough to be confident that I am using it properly.)
In my RSS reader, where there are currently 2774 unread articles and 361 marked for later reading, I came across an interview with Noam Chomsky on information overload. And then I opened my 7th tab in Firefox to write about it.
Of course, Chomsky may not be the best person to ask about this subject. He says, “I wish I could answer sensibly. I just can’t. You should see the room in which I’m working. Piles of books, clippings, manuscripts, notes … All sorts of lost treasures buried in them.”
Now I’ll actually read the article.
Update: It turns out that quote was Chomsky’s entire contribution to that article. Haha.
