ignorance, the new knowledge

From Cory:It’s as though there’s a cognitive style built into TCP/IP. Just as the network only does best-effort delivery of packets, not worrying so much about the bits that fall on the floor, TCP/IP users also do best-effort sweeps of the Internet, focusing on learning from the good stuff they find, rather than lamenting the stuff they don’t have time to see.

The network won’t ever become more tractable. There will never be fewer things vying for our online attention. The only answer is better ways and new technology to ignore stuff — a field that’s just being born, with plenty of room to grow.” Connections with Everything is miscellaneous, the new guide to information, are clear, of course.

Connections to Proust and Freud. Plato added here. and Proust and neuroloscience here.
