Katie Muirhead's curator insight, August 21, 2014 1:07 AM

An interesting talk by Clay Shirky, focusing on the amount of information in the world and available to us. He calls this overwhelming amount 'information-overload', but rather than accepting that it is the readers' problem, it is due to a lack of filter failures. I like the suggestion of the 'post-Gutenburg' economics, in that on the internet there is no economic necessity to filter quality before being published online as it doesn't cost anything.

Conversation Agent: The Five Rs of 21st Century Content Curation | Multitasking and attention | Scoop.it
[Quote of the Week: "Reacting to information is the exact opposite of critical thinking."] Why do I constantly update my Google Reader RSS feeds? Adding categories, fine tuning reading lists, then upsetting them all over again when I stumble upon several great sites. That's because I rely on information discovery to push my own thinking.
