The Information: James Gleick
Well talk about too much information ... Google gives us information on demand. And the gadgets in our homes, our workplaces -- even our pockets allow us to trade information instantly and at volumes that would have been unimaginable even a decade ago.
But that doesn't necessarily mean we understand information any better or that we're more informed. James Gleick has a new book on this issue, he takes on the sheer mushrooming mass of information and how it affects the way we live and think. His book is The Information: A History, A Theory, A Flood. James Gleick was in New York City.
