information overload

A favorite spread from a classic, Bruce Mau's Massive Change: THE MOST DANGEROUS THING IN THE WORLD (AND THE MOST BEAUTIFUL), a graph made November 2003 by the Opte project, provides an analysis of wasted Internet protocol (IP) space, maps IP distribution, and detects the results of natural disasters, weather, and war. The research shows that the known internet is growing by more than 10 million new, static pages each day. The effect is the global accumulation of knowledge over time and the ever increasing value of search engines like Google. 

Topics I have googled in the past 24 hours: Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes, tomato jam recipe, Fine Line Music cafe, elephant bones, Dr. Seuss, Horton Hears a Who, puppy drinks too much water, UnConvention, Liberty Parade, Juergen Teller, Charlotte Rampling, mojito, Office Max.

School has started. My brain's a bit numb. So much thinking about so many things...
