Infinideas! Infinormation!

Have you heard how much "information" is available to us today? It's ridiculously more than ever before. Along with that comment, have you also heard how the whole of information content is growing exponentially?

This is an unstoppable pattern as more information generates more ideas which beget more information and of course, more ideas. I believe we've reached a point where infinideas (ideas to infinity) are generating infinormation (an infinity of information) and we'll soon find our selves incapable of two things:

1. Keeping track of how much real "information" actually exists, and
2. Knowing what the heck to do with it all!

As information grows rampantly, the population of this world will be easily outpaced by information growth and we will thus reach a saturation point where additional information (ad nauseum) above and beyond what we can tame, will not be absorbed by humans.

Welcome to the age of infinormation and infinideas!

We have tons of information available to us how much I can't really say but I know it is alot. Kevin the two things that you said will end up happening

1. Keeping track of how much real "information" actually exists, and
2. Knowing what the heck to do with it all!

I agree with it. Sooner or later it is gonna be that way. We as people are not gonna know what to do with all this info to infinity.

I agree with the sentiment, but I can't pronounce the words.
