Information overload

I’m not that worried about the overwhelming amount of information I have access to. I do worry about what I’m doing with that information. But assuming that it’s the abundance of information that leads to our increasing love for trivial things is definitely a case of using the post hoc ergo propter hoc fallacy.

Some people take great libraries and use them to learn and do great things. Others take great libraries and, well, don’t do anything.
