Lost in information


When researching a new project or reading up on something for fun, I can't help but get consumed in related links, pictures, videos, opinions (the works) and before you know it I'm on wikipedia checking out Guatamalan poetry (not really, but you get the idea).

Anyway, I guess the point is that there is just too much information out there.

It's all consuming, in a great way, but are we not just becoming a little too distracted? The internet is no longer used for finding out what we want to know, but instead leads us to enjoy all the tangents that come out of that question. A great organic library of random facts, trivia and observations, basically a never ending episode of QI.
