I have been basking in the pleasant prose of the The Cluetrain Manifesto. The following segment sums up both the horror and beauty of being human – the joys and tribulations of being open to information overload.

I am reminded of the central insight from my doctoral dissertation (that at a certain level of abstraction the operations of perception and communication can be modelled by machines… apparatus, sense, orientation…)

We of genus Homo are wired to respond to each other's noise and commotion, to the rich, multi-modal deluge of data each of us broadcasts as we wade through life.
