Submission + - Too Much Information can be worse than you thought (npr.org)

CeruleanDragon writes: This excerpt sums it up pretty well, "Google's Eric Schmidt recently stated that every two days we create as much information as we did from the beginning of civilization through 2003. Perhaps the sheer bulk of data makes it easier to suppress that information which we find overly unpleasant. Who's got time for a victim in Afghanistan or end-of-life issues with all these Tweets coming in?"

It's a valid point. If it's not Tweets or FB posts, it's lengthy forum arguments or reading news articles from the time you walk in the door at work until you're ready for bed at night and realizing you didn't actually accomplish *anything* else. Sometimes too much information can get in the way of living and can bury otherwise important things.
