Quote of the day

I think it’s [“consumed”] an ugly term when applied to information. When you talk about consuming information you are talking about information as a commodity, rather than information as the substance of our thoughts and our communications with other people. To talk about consuming it, I think you lose a deeper sense of information as a carrier of meaning and emotion—the matter of intimate intellectual and social exchange between human beings. It becomes more of a product, a good, a commodity.

—Nicholas Carr, in an interview about his books and five books on technology and information that he recommends
