Information Overload

Ever feel that your head is fully saturated with information, a condition we nowadays called 'information overload' or 'information flood'? It seems we are not the only one suffering from it. While Augustine suffers from information underload- seems he was accused of being "steeped too long in too few books." -scholars and readers after the invention of the printing press also complained of information overload.

The "information flood" has a longer history than we suppose.
