"Outlets ranging from The New York Times to Lifehack.org have addressed the consequences of too much online information. Personally, I’ve never bought it. More than a decade ago, I argued that people can stand all the information you can possibly throw at them—about things in which they’re interested. The stuff they don’t care about? They don’t waste time with it. As for the worry about too many sources of information, content and conversation, I figure people will adjust based on their interests and the time they have available. Tools that consolidate, aggregate and curate have helped, too."
