From "Technopoly: The Surrender of Culture to Technology" - by Neil Postman (1992)

Illuminating another side of the Information Dynamics, which H.Simon pointed to:

"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." ―Herbert Simon (Designing Organizations for an Information-Rich World, 1969)
