The Basics of Information Literacy
“…the wealth of information means a dearth of something else; a scarcity of whatever it is that information consumes. 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.”
