One brain for double the information – every 18 months

Some years ago I heard it said that there was more information in a Saturday newspaper than a person from the 17th century would experience in a life time.

Now this from Seth Godin

‘Redoubling to system failure

Every 18 months for the last decade, the world has doubled the data it pushes to you.

Twice as much email, twice as many friend requests, twice as many sites to check, twice as many devices.

When does your mind lose the ability to keep up? Then what happens? Is it already happening?’

Seth is a champion of the inter-connectivity of the internet and technology – if he’s worried, we should take note. PH
