article description
Some years ago, I read an article that made a startling claim: the Information Age was about to usher in a new Dark Age, in which the difficulty of distinguishing truth from falsehood and significant from trivial would render us not unlike the pre-literate cultures of long ago. It was a prospect I found difficult to imagine.
