Comment on Thoughts 1/17 by Gabriel

“The worst image… is people who are overloaded with information, which they don’t what to do with, have no sense of what is relevant what is irrelevant…” Is there such a thing as too much information? Postman goes as far as arguing that children are starving in Somalia not because we don’t have information, but because we have too much.
The internet is an incredible resource, but I do think skills need to be developed to effectively use it. Information overload is a legit issue, but its hard to blame the producer of online content. Information and knowledge can be shared seamlessly which is a great benefit for us. I believe we must do better to utilize/filter this mass of free information.
