Information Overload: The real problem is Filter Failure!

Web 2.0 Expo NY: Clay Shirky (shirky.com) It's Not Information Overload. It's Filter Failure.

Clay Shirky makes an argument that Information Overload has been with us for a long period of time; it began with the invention of the printing press.  He backs up his argument with some interesting points:

  1. Books always had built-in filters because of the cost of publishing
  2. With the cost of publishing to the web relatively cheap, the filter is no longer built in to the system
