Tagged With information overload

Do you feel like you're currently being inundated with too much information? People have been warning about the threat of "information overload" for decades. But a new poll by Pew Research Center shows that most Americans don't feel overloaded at all. Unless you're elderly or make very little money. Which, at the end of the day, makes the threat of information overload a workers' rights issue.

For decades, Ray Kurzweil has consistently been wrong about the future. But people still listen to him for some reason. In fact, organisations reportedly pay him $US50,000 ($66,947) per speech to hear him say inane things about the shiny, tech-utopian world of tomorrow. At one such speech he recently said that the world isn't getting worse, it's merely our perception. Allow me to humbly suggest that, at best, Ray Kurzweil is talking bullshit.
